Story Highlights

  • Police complaint been filed against him.
  • Das in a social media statement defended the video.

Kangana Ranaut called comedian Vir Das a ‘criminal’ for comments he made in the video ‘I Come From Two Indias,’ which was recently posted. Das has been charged with making defamatory remarks by the police. The video was shot during Vir Das’ concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and was posted to his YouTube page earlier this week.

In an Instagram Story on Wednesday, Kangana remarked that several statements made by Das in the monologue were “generalisations,” comparing them to Winston Churchill’s controversial remarks regarding the Bengal famine of 1943. In the video, Das said, “In India, we worship women in the day and rape them at night.” A Delhi BJP member filed a complaint against him.

Kangana wrote in her post, “When you generalise all Indian men as gang rapists it gives rise and encouragement to racism and bullying against Indians all over the world… After the Bengal famine Churchill famously said, ‘These Indians breed like rabbits they are bound to die like this…’ He blamed Indians’ sex drive/fertility for the death of millions because of hunger… Such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism… Strict actions must be taken against such criminals @virdas.”

Das defended the video on social media, urging people not to be fooled by edited clips. “Please do not be fooled by edited snippets,” he said, while further explaining the purpose behind making the video as part of his recent tour to America.
