Kangana had then suggested that the country should do away from the name India and must thereafter be called ‘Bharat’ instead. In another tweet, she re-shared a fan post on X who said that the actor is always ahead of others.She wrote, “And some call it black magic …. It’s simply Grey matter honey (smiling face emoticon) Congratulations to everyone!! Freed from a slave name … Jai Bharat.”
In her recent post, she shared a detailed history of the names over the years. She wrote, “What is there to love in this name? First of all they couldn’t pronounce ‘Sindhu’ toh usko bigad ke ‘ Indus’ kar diya. Phir kabhi Hindos kabhi Indos kuch bhi gol mol karke India bana diya. (They turned Sindhu into Indus. Then Hindos became Indos) From the time of Mahabharata, all the kingdoms who participated in the Great War of Kurukshetra came under one continent called Bharat so why were they calling us Indu Sindu??
She further added, ‘Also the name Bharat is so meaningful, what is the meaning of India ? I know they called Red Indians because in olden English Indian simply meant a slave, they named us Indians because that was our new identity given to us by the British. Even in olden days dictionary Indian’s meaning was mentioned as slave they recently changed it. Also it’s not our name we are Bhartiya not Indians.”
The reports for renaming emerged after an official dinner invitation for G20 delegates from Rashtrapati Bhavan went viral on social media. Instead of The President of India, the invitation was from the President of Bharat.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kangana will next be seen in ‘Chandramukhi 2’. The film will hit the theatres on September 19. Apart from this, she also has projects like, ‘Emergency’ and ‘Tejas’ in her kitty.
