Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut today unveiled the trailer of her upcoming film Panga in Mumbai. At the trailer launch, the actor was asked about the ongoing protests against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

Speaking about CAA protests, the Panga actor said, "When you are demonstrating, the first thing that is important is people don't take to violence. In our country, only three to four per cent of people pay taxes. Rest of them are actually dependent on them. So, who gives you the right to burn buses, trains and create ruckus in the country? That should be looked into because one bus costs a lot. It's not a small amount. And the condition of this country is such that there are so many who are dying of malnutrition, so it's not correct for people to instigate violence in the name of democracy. This is my personal opinion."

"We are still hanging on to pre-Independence era. During that time, going on strikes against people who had captured us and not paying taxes was really cool. Isn't it democracy if someone has gained power on the basis of what they wrote in the manifesto, and, today, they are fulfilling that? So, you can't be a sore loser," Kangana Ranaut added.
