Kangana Ranaut asks PM Modi to scrap Article 370
She said, “It is my sincere request to our prime minister (Narendra Modi) that Article 370 should be completely scrapped. I feel that after so many years of Independence, no state in our country should face confusion as to where they belong.”
She further added, “The Pakistani movie-going audience always shower us with love and ideally there should be a line drawn. But, having said that, everything that religion of its own, including war. In fact, I feel Pakistani people should draw inspiration from us, the way we (Indians) have come together in unity for our soldiers, our government and our soil.”
Commenting on the ban, she said, “There should be no conflict. If families of the soldiers are hurt then why should we entertain Pakistani artists? Emotions of the families are most important right now.”
