Kangana Ranaut on being a nationalist

Kangana Ranaut agreed that artistic realm is different from the physical realm. "But we can't ignore the physical borders. During the ban in India on Pakistan artists, people were emotional.

"The common sentiment is "Humko kya Lena dena, hum toh artist hai(We are artists, why should we care?)". No, you are Indians as well, and your soldiers are dying at the border, you can't talk about that," Ranaut said.

Ranaut hit out at people who have an issue standing up for the National Anthem. "Why are you ashamed of your nation? When Americans stand up to the national anthem, they do it with hands on their heart. Why are we ashamed to do that? I am with my army, with my soldiers and I am a cool youngster if 21st century," she added.

Never had privilege of dumping someone, says Kangana Ranaut

Speaking on Hrithik Roshan controversy, Kangana Ranaut said,"The intention is why should something so unimportant be a mystery. If you guard them with love, they become aura of your life. Why would I guard something that has gone wrong with my life?".

"For me, love is not a physical expression or about intimacy... Love has to be extraordinary; it has to be spiritual," she said. She added that Roshan left her after calling her a "psycho lover" because she was spiritually in love with him.

"I have never had the privilege of dumping someone," she said.

She added: "As an outsider, I have my way. I will say my point and you can't shut me up. Similarly, we can't tell him how to function, it's his way that works for him. We need a balance and we can co-exist."
