Kangana Ranaut recently attended a media conclave where she shared the stage with Lieutenant Shivangi Singh, the first Indian woman fighter pilot to fly a Rafale jet. Incidentally, Ranaut will be playing a fighter pilot in the film Tejas, which will be released in theatres on October 27.
In the course of her conversation with Lieutenant Singh, Kangana spoke about the respect and admiration she feels for soldiers safeguarding the nation's borders. The actor also shared the sentiments behind her upcoming film Tejas and said, "We have made a film called Tejas that explores the emotional journey of a soldier stationed at the borders, delving into the psyche of an Indian soldier and the impact of discussions on their morale."
Speaking about the impact of criticism and irresponsible statements on the morale of a soldier Ranaut said, "When you speak disparagingly about our soldiers, questioning their dedication and even refusing to stand for the national anthem, it not only disheartens them but also reflects a lack of responsibility."
Ranaut added, "Before making such allegations, it is crucial to understand the gravity of the situation and the sacrifices our soldiers make. Tejas unveils the truth behind such incidents and why it is imperative to refrain from baseless comments."
Tejas will be released in theatres on October 27. The film is written and directed by Sarvesh Mewara and produced under Ronnie Screwvala's banner RSVP.
