Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut's Twitter account has been suspended by the microblogging site. The actress had tweeted about West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee after which her account was suspended from the microblogging platform. The actress had reacted to the violence that took place in Bengal following the Assembly Elections results announcement on Sunday. It is said that Kangana's tweet violated the rules of the platform. The actress had demanded imposing president's rule in the state after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won.
The ruling TMC has won 212 of the 292 seats where polling was held in eight phases in March and April. The BJP emerged as the main opposition party with 77 seats under its belt. Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee will take oath as West Bengal Chief Minister for the third consecutive term on Wednesday, May 5.
In reaction, the actress told IANS she had other platforms to raise her voice including her films. She said: "Twitter has only proved my point they are Americans and by birth a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do."
She added: "Fortunately, I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice including my own art in the form of cinema but my heart goes out to the people of this nation who have been tortured, enslaved and censored for thousands of years and still there is no end to the suffering."
On the professional front, Kangana will next be seen in her upcoming film Thalaivi where she plays late Tamil Nadu chief minister J. Jayalalithaa. The film is slated to release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It was scheduled for an April 23 release but due to the surge of the second wave of Covid19, the film has been postponed.
