Kangana Ranaut, National Award-winning actress, on Saturday heaped praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that he is the rightful leader of the democracy. She said that he deserves to come in power again in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
‘Narendra Modi is the most deserving candidate and rightful leader of a democracy. He is not in this position because of his parents, he has worked hard to be here,’ she said to reporters, according to news agency ANI.
Kangana recently walked the ramp at the launch of Platinum Vogue in Mumbai as the showstopper and after the event, where she was asked about her political ambitions by the media. ‘Whenever there is any danger on our country, we have our soldiers who are ready to sacrifice their lives even without batting an eyelid. If my country ever needs me, then I will be willing to lay my life for my country, leave alone joining politics,’ she said.
Kangana attended the screening of short film ‘Chalo Jeete Hain’, which is reportedly inspired by the early life of Prime Minister Modi.
‘The film has been made beautifully. It shows how Prime Minister Modi being a sensitive child went through such extreme circumstances. But I feel this film is not about him. Rather it is about us – how the society needs to be together to rise. This film is just a small part of his life,’ Kangana said after the screening.
‘He (PM Modi) is the most deserving candidate. It’s not like he has reached this place because of his mother and father. He is the rightful leader of the democracy. We have voted him as our Prime Minister. This cannot be taken away from him. This is his well-deserved place which he has earned after sheer hardwork. So, there shouldn’t be any doubt about his credibility as a Prime Minister,’ she said when asked to analyze the last four years of the ruling govt.
Kangana said PM Modi need to come to power again. ‘Of course. Why not? Five years are very less to take the nation out of a pit. Our country is in a pit, we need to pull it out,’ she said when asked if she wants Prime Minister Modi to be in power again.
Co-directed by Aanand L. Rai and Mahaveer Jain, ‘Chalo Jeete Hain’ invited a lot of praise from ministers after it was screened at the Rashtrapati Bhavan Cultural Centre on Tuesday.
The trailer reveals the story of a young boy, who keeps on asking his parents and other people as to what it is that they live for after reading a phrase `a winner is one who lives for others’.
