Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut praised Prime minister Narendra Modi on Saturday, saying he is the “rightful leader of the democracy,” and he deserves to come in power again in the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

She voiced her opinions at the premiere of Chalo Jeete Hain, a short film revolving around Modi’s childhood. The film tells the tale of a young Modi, and how he helped a friend of his.

After the premiere, Kangana said, “He is the most deserving candidate. It’s not because of his mummy and papa that he has reached this position. This should not be taken away from him. He deserves this place and he has earned it by sheer hard work. There is no conflict, doubt about his credibility as the prime minister.”

“Yes, he should come to power next year as 5 years are not enough to pull a country out of the pit,” she added.

The movie Chalo Jeete Hain was screened at both Rashtrapati Bhawan auditorium and Rajya Sabha secretariat last week and earned a lot of praise from ministers and the president and the vice-president.

The story is based on a young boy, who goes on asking his parents and others the meaning of the phrase, “a winner is one who lives for others.” The young boy is believed to be Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as the protagonist can also be seen selling tea at a railway station and is deeply influenced by Swami Vivekananda’s teachings. However, no one, including the director, mentions Modi directly.

Earlier, Modi had met Kangana and the pictures of their meeting went viral on social media.

“I am a big Modi fan because of his success story. As a young woman, I do believe that we need to have the right role models. I mean the graph and the ambition of an ordinary man and whenever we have a PM who is a chai wala, then I always say that it is not his victory but it is the victory of our democracy. I feel he is the right role model,” the actor had said.

While, several Bollywood stars openly supporting the BJP and the PM, hardly anyone from the industry has come out in the open to support the rivals of the ruling regime.

There is a reason behind it as after superstar Aamir Khan spoke about his fears regarding the political atmosphere in the country at an event in 2015, he was publicly lambasted by several BJP leaders and supporters. The actor was even asked to leave the country.

Bollywood celebrities like Swara Bhaskar and Vishal Dadlani, who regularly speak against political and social evils, have been subjected to ugly and nasty criticism on social media by BJP supporters. No one criticised Kangana for supporting Modi, because she has the right to do so, but the same logic does not apply to those who support Modi’s rivals.
