Bollywood diva Kangana Ranaut, in an interview opened up about her inspiration and said “I’ve grown up listening to Rani Laxmibai’s legend and folklore like all of us but at the same time I did not know the intensity of her life. Her youth had gone in battling the enemy and preparing the regular people to become warriors,” Kangana said in a statement.
“What was unknown about her life is that she fought for many things that are acceptable today like adoption and women empowerment. She was completely against untouchability and she neither believed in caste system. She was a Brahmin who fought like Kshatriyas. She fought against Bargad Pratha, Parda system, caste system and untouchability. She fought for all these things relentlessly and conquered all those”. “She was a visionary and I value the freedom that we have because of her a lot more,” she added.
