The surge in Covid-19 cases has flagged concerns across the nation and a slew of new and strict restrictions have been imposed in several states. Amid the rising tensions, actress Kangana Ranaut has lashed out at those feeling 'depressed' about the economic and emotional fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a series of tweets posted on Tuesday, the Panga actress wrote that those who are 'rattled' or 'angry' by the 'current situations' are 'brats'.
“Anyone who is angry, depressed and rattled with current situation is an entitled brat,if tom Sun decides not to shine it does not owe you any explanation,this earth which nurtured and mothered you suddenly became hostile,she does not owe you an explanation.Calm down you fools 1/2", Kangana Ranaut wrote in a tweet.
She added, "Earth does not move on it’s axis for you, sun does not shine for your silly currency. In the Macrocosm even this earth is like an atom, in this vast universe who cares about your life ? Whether we get life or death only legitimate emotion to have is gratitude, sit down idiots."
Kangana’s recent remarks come in view of people sharing horror stories of the situation out there - strain on medical resources and health infrastructure, shortage in supplies of oxygen cylinders and COVID-19 drugs.
In a separate tweet, the Queen actress wrote that she has 'empathy but no patience for dramebaaz people', whom she accused of 'throwing their weight around and crying foul'. She added, "If one does not understand much one can at least know everything is mere cause and effect,if we received her grace without questioning we need to receive her wrath as well."
Meanwhile, In India, there are currently 19,29,329 active cases as of Monday and the death toll reached 1,78,769.
On the work front, Kangana is working on several back-to-back projects and was set to appear in Thalaivi, a biopic of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. But the film's release was delayed in light of the rise in Covid-19 cases.
