In response to Kangana Ranaut’s recent derogatory comments about actor Urmila Matondkar, Congress has retaliated, questioning Ranaut’s failure to condemn her own remarks. This comes after Supriya Shrinate, a Congress leader, clarified an objectionable post related to Ranaut on her Instagram account.

Hours after Supriya Shrinate clarified the contentious post on Kangana Ranaut’s Instagram, Congress criticized the actor for labeling Urmila Matondkar, who had previously joined and left Congress, as a “soft porn star.”

Sharing a video of Ranaut’s earlier remarks about Urmila Matondkar, Srinivas BV, president of the Indian Youth Congress (IYC), stated, “What was posted from Supriya Ji’s account was absolutely derogatory. She has not only deleted it but also clarified and Condemned it in the Strongest Terms.” In the same tweet, he questioned Ranaut’s silence on her own disparaging comments.

In the video, Ranaut can be heard referring to Urmila Matondkar as a “soft porn star” and questioning her contributions to acting. Ranaut’s remarks sparked controversy, especially in the wake of Matondkar’s criticism of Ranaut’s disrespect towards veteran actor Jaya Bachchan.

The controversy between Kangana and Urmila ensued after the latter criticized Ranaut for disrespecting Jaya Bachchan, who had defended the film industry in a 2020 speech in Parliament. Urmila’s response emphasized Jaya Bachchan’s longstanding contribution to the industry and questioned Ranaut’s behavior.

Urmila Matondkar, who ventured into politics as a Congress candidate in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North, later resigned from the party and joined Shiv Sena in 2020.

The controversy escalated on Monday when an objectionable post about Kangana Ranaut surfaced on Supriya Shrinate’s Instagram. Shrinate, in a video message, attributed the post to someone who had unauthorized access to her social media accounts, including Facebook and Instagram.

In response, Kangana Ranaut condemned the derogatory post, urging people to refrain from using sex workers’ lives as a form of abuse or slur.

Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut was named the BJP candidate from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi constituency, while senior party leader Dr. Rajeev Bharadwaj would contest from Kangra constituency in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. Their nominations were included in the fifth list of BJP candidates released on Sunday.
