Urmila Matondkar’s Tweet After Kangana Ranaut’s “Soft Porn Star” Attack

Actor-politician Urmila Matondkar expressed her gratitude to the “real people of India” for supporting her after being derisively called a “soft porn star” by movie star Kangana Ranaut in a television interview.

This week, Urmila Matondkar joined a growing league of film industry members who lashed out at Kangana for calling Mumbai “Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.” She also questioned her claims about all-pervasive nepotism and widespread use of illegal drugs in Bollywood.

In response, Kangana said, Matondkar, one of the biggest stars of the 90s, was a “soft porn star” who is not known for her acting. She had also taken shots at film industry veteran Jaya Bachchan who too had called her out without naming her.

Ms Ranaut’s comments were met with criticism from the industry, with many, including frequent collaborator Ram Gopal Varma, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha and actor Swara Bhasker, hailing Ms Matondkar’s consistent “grace and dignity” throughout her career of over 25 years.

Taking to Twitter, Ms Matondkar thanked the “real people of India” for standing by her in the face of fake “propaganda”.

Others from the fraternity who came out in support of Ms Matondkar, included actors Pooja Bhatt, Sayani Gupta and screenwriter Kanika Dhillon.

In an interview to NDTV, Ms Matondkar had said, “You cannot cross a certain line, speak ill of an industry that has made you everything. If some people are taking drugs or are drug addicts, you have no reason to compare it to mafia. When Kangana was not even born, Jaya ji was in the film industry. We’re talking about a lady here (Jaya Bachchan) who has herself been an icon. Which part of Indian culture tells you to lash out at people like this?”
