Kangana Ranaut wants Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan renamed 'Indian Pathaan': 'Indian Muslims are patriotic and unlike Afghan Pathans.'

 Pathaan, according to Kangana Ranaut, "shows the enemy nation Pakistan and ISIS in good light," implying that it does not reflect the Indian public's sentiments.

Even though Kangana Ranaut has only been back on Twitter for a few days, the actor has already sparked controversy. She claimed in a series of tweets on Friday that the nation would still chant "Jai Shri Ram" despite the success of Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan. According to Kangana, the star-studded film starring Shah Rukh Khan is a resounding success due to "India's love and inclusiveness."

According to Kangana, the film by Siddharth Anand portrays "our enemy nation Pakistan and ISIS in good light." Later, she changed ISIS to ISI. Her subsequent tweet read, "Lekin all those who are having high hopes please note... Pathan sirf ek film ho sakti hai... goonjega toh yahan sirf Jai Shri Ram... (For all those who are having high hopes, please note that Pathaan might be a film, the country will still roar with Jai Shri Ram)." She went on to say, "It is this spirit of India beyond hate and judgments that makes it Mahan...

In addition, she wrote, "I do believe Indian Muslims are patriotic and very different from Afghan Pathans... the crux is India will never be Afghanistan, we all know what is happening in Afghanistan, it’s beyond hell there, so apt name for the movie Pathan according to its storyline is the Indian Pathan." When a parody account asserted that "Pathaan’s single day earning is more than your lifetime earnings," Kangana responded by stating that she had mortgaged everything she owned in preparation

The actor said in another tweet that the movie was "propaganda." She wrote, "If the film industry doesn't want to be burned by political propaganda, they should use their films to condemn it."

Prior to Pathaan's success, Kangana had stated, "aisi films chalni chahiye" (such films should succeed). She told reporters, "Pathaan acha kar rahi hai," at the wrap party for her upcoming film Emergency. Aisi films are doing well, and I think that the Hindi film industry as a whole is doing well—Pathaan is doing very well, for example. We're all working hard to restore Hindi cinema to its former glory, and I think films like this should do well).

Prior to making these remarks, Kangana rants on Twitter about the film industry's focus on numbers rather than filmmaking. "We as artists mustn't speak or think like dhandewale, we must retain the sanctity of art and vidya," she wrote in one of her tweets. "Whatever money it brings to the table is a consequence of people's love, and whoever wants can go to business websites, there are plenty of them and find out about money made," she continued.

"Permanently suspended for repeated violation of Twitter rules" was the fate of Kangana's Twitter account in 2021. Her venomous remarks were frequently reported on Twitter, igniting outrage among internet users. We have made it abundantly clear that we will vigorously enforce behavior that has the potential to cause harm offline. A statement issued by Twitter at the time stated, "The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules, specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy."

On its second day at the box office, Pathaan made approximately Rs 70 crore. The film managed to gross more than Rs 120 crore in the domestic market in its first two days. The movie is on its way to earning Rs 200 crore during its first weekend.
