Actor Kubbra Sait took an indirect jibe at actor Kangana Ranaut over her comments on the farmers’ protest, and disparaging remarks about supporters of the movement. Though Kubbra did not directly name Kangana, she made a reference to her National Award-winning film, Queen.
“Queen Queen bula bula ke beda gard kar diya hai (You referred to her as ‘queen’ and created trouble)!” Kubbra wrote in a tweet. In her follow-up tweet, she corrected a typo and wrote, “Sorry it’s apparently gark.”
Kangana made disparaging remarks about singer Rihanna and Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg for tweeting about the farmers’ protest. Suggesting that Rihanna was paid for her tweet, Kangana asked what was special about her. “…Well… she can shake her bum cheeks and expose her a** crack right in to the camera lens while singing..ya that’s all. Nothing else,” she wrote. She also called Greta a ‘rat’ who ‘does not want to go to school, hates to study’ and claimed that she was a part of a ‘conspiracy’ against India.
Last year, Kubbra supported a Twitter trend to suspend Kangana’s account, which was then handled by her team. Kubbra clarified that it was ‘not personal’ and called the tweets from the account ‘toxic’.
Kubbra was later blocked on Twitter by Kangana and reacted to it by tweeting, “Aiyo! I was silent all along. Not one tweet to her. We are katti and she didn’t even tell me. Told her it’s not personal bro!” Kubbra also questioned the Y-plus security cover given to Kangana ahead of her visit to Mumbai last year and wrote, “Just checking, is it going out my taxes?”
