Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut has once again targeted film industry colleagues. She has said that there are many selfish people in the Hindi film fraternity, who show indifference towards people of our country.
Kangana Ranaut was speaking Thursday at the press conference of ‘Cauvery Calling Tree Plantation Campaign’ here.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) recently gave approval to cut over 2,600 trees for a Metro car shed in the Aarey Colony adjoining suburban Goregaon, which is known as the major green lung of the city. Celebrities including Lata Mangeshkar, Shraddha Kapoor and John Abraham have expressed their disappointment over the civic body’s decision.
Kangana Ranaut was asked whether she would like to appeal to her colleagues from film industry to talk about Aarey colony issue. “I think everyone should come forward to talk about Aarey Colony and I would like to urge the media to set high standards for themselves because I have seen very selfish people in this industry. They show a lot of indifference when it comes to India and people of our country. I feel media and people of this country should decide to whom they want to put on a pedestal. I feel power should be given to those who don’t misuse it,” Kangana Ranaut told reporters.
“I cannot emphasise more on this subject and if this campaign becomes successful then we can launch a campaign in draught affected areas of Maharashtra where we can convert farmers into tree-based farming. I think it’s more about emotion which comes from your heart and if you don’t feel about the issue then no one can do anything about it,” the ‘Queen’ heroine added.
Kangana Ranaut also expressed her disappointment over civic body’s decision to cut 2,600 trees.
“I feel we need to resolve that issue. If we start cutting trees like this then it is not a correct thing and it shouldn’t be allowed. When we reconstruct or renovate a building that time, we find alternate places for people who are living over there. But we don’t think in a similar manner when it comes to animals and trees. I feel we can wait for metro rail project but we can’t afford to cut trees and make this city like concrete jungle,” asserted the feisty actress.
