Kangana Ranaut on India’s name says, “We must regain our lost glory, let’s start with the name Bharat.”

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut recently expressed her support for changing the name of India to Bharat in a social media post on X, formerly known as Twitter. The actress reminded her followers that she had first expressed her opinions on this topic two years prior and that she still firmly supports those views.

Kangana Ranaut argues that the term “Indians” was used by the country’s residents during the British colonial era, and she thinks this identity was imposed on the people. She went on to say that the name “Bharat” had great significance while the phrase “India” was meaningless in terms of history or culture. Kangana Ranaut re-shared a screenshot of her 2021 statement on her Instagram Stories to demonstrate how serious she is about this cause.

She had previously spoken in favour of abandoning the term “India” and for the adoption of the name “Bharat” in order to better reflect the history and identity of the nation.

Kangana Ranaut also shared an X user’s praise for her forward-thinking position. With a hint of humour, she replied, “And some call it black magic. Grey matter, baby (emoticon with a similar face). Happy birthday to everyone! From a slave name, liberated I salute India.

Kangana Ranaut posted a thorough letter detailing the name’s historical development over time in her most recent update on the microblogging website. What is there to love in this name? she asked, writing a long note on the subject. They had trouble pronouncing “Sindhu” to begin with, which is why they couldn’t say “Indus” in bigad. Phir Kabhi Hindus and Indos are the two major ethnic groups in India. Sindhu was changed into Indus by them. Since all the kingdoms that took part in the Great War of Kurukshetra were united under the name of Bharat beginning with the time of the Mahabharata, why were we being referred to as Indu Sindu?

What does India mean? Bharat is a very meaningful word, she said. I am aware that the British gave us a new identity of Indians, which they termed Red Indians because, in earlier English, Indian simply meant a slave. Even in earlier dictionaries, the word “Indian” was still used to signify “slave,” but this has recently changed. We are Bhartiya, not Indians, thus it’s not even our name.

In the meantime, on the movie front, Kangana was most recently spotted in Dhaakad, which also starred Divya Dutta and Arjun Rampal. The movie had a bad box office performance. Emergency, Ranaut’s upcoming movie and second effort as a director is currently scheduled for release. Anupam Kher, Shreyas Talpade, Mahima Chaudhry, and Milind Soman all play significant roles in the ensemble star cast, which is based on the 1975 Indian Emergency. On October 20, it was supposed to be released. Kangana cancelled the release, nevertheless, to avoid a conflict with Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s Ganapath. In a tweet, Ranaut has promised to provide the release date and trailer one month beforehand.
