Saif Ali Khan last featured in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior where the actor essayed the role of Udaybhan Singh Rathore. The film landed into a soup for its political revisionism. Critics reported that the makers have revamped the history and molded it into something different than the real facts. Based on true events, the altered politics in the film did not go well with the audience. In his recent interview with Anupama Chopra, Saif Ali Khan made a comment saying that there was no concept of India before the British made one.

Even though the actor might not have meant any harm as he also stated that he should have taken a stand against the altered politics in the Ajay Devgn starrer but his delicious role refrained him from doing so, his comment has dragged him into a controversy. Kangana Ranaut, who shared the screen with Saif Ali Khan in 2017 film Rangoon, decided to hit back at the actor bringing up the concept of Mahabharat. Kangana is known for speaking her mind whenever she feels necessary. 

The actress wears her heart on her sleeve when it comes to expressing her grief or joy. Responding to the statement made by Saif, Kangana retorted that Mahabharat proves the existence of a united India before the British rule. Talking about Ved Vyas, who wrote the Mahabharat, she questioned how did he write about the epic battle if there was no India before the British Raj. Kangana's sister Rangoli shared the video on her Twitter handle, writing, “Kangana asking Saif Ali Khan a very important question ... over to you Saif.”

This is not the first time that Kangana and Saif Ali Khan are locking horns with each other. In IIFA 2017, Saif had mocked Kangana for her comment on Nepotism. However, the two resolved their differences and Saif wrote an open letter where he admitted that he apologised to Kangana for the same.

Birthday gift for Kangana- legitimate history textbook.

Kangana= maggi noodles instant opinions loved by many but unhealthy!!!

I agre with Kangana..

Yeah, except that's not REAL Kangana! Saif is right, all modern countries are created by the British to some extent. They even created themselves by absorbing every tribe on their own islands, otherwise there would be no "United Kingdom", just lots of separate states, just like India.

Absolutely accurate! And Sardar Vallabhai Patel and our leaders at the time stitched together all the diverse principalities, provinces and regions into modern India.

Kangana is right. Mahabharat and Chanakya had the concept of Bharat. Maybe Saif can talk about the terrorist Taimur, who he named his son after

In tanhaji , a rajput fighting a marati. Thats india for you.

Can Rangoli shut up? Her existence is so pathetic shes a Twitter mouthpiece for her little sister. Moving onto Saifs comment has right modern India was conceptualized by the British. Ancient India was something different, and MYTHICAL India something different. There are countries called Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and a few others that were part of Ancient and Mythical India both of which were divided. The Ramayan mentions other Kings. I presume the Mahabharat would too. Unified India is a recent thing and it happened because families like Saif seceded their powers to the British Crown allowing it to make figureheads of warriors and unit a fragmented country. Not everything Kangana says is Gospel. Not all of her religious references are authoritative. I am so over people taking everything she says seriously because that's precisely what inflated her ego to this point. Mind you the destruction of ego is at the core of Sanatan Dharam so maybe she needs to engage with her sacred texts more deeply. No conscious Hindu would debate such a political question, in fact they would completely disassociate from politics altogether.

Why has Kangana and Rangoli appointed themselves the police force of their film fraternity n drag all their peers in dirty mud slinging. Why is it that no one is allowed to misspeak or not articulate themselves properly or fleshed out their point but those 2. Why do then need to “hit back” at everyone in matters that do not concern them and drag everybody in a dirty fight. Why are they in a fights to prove that they are the best in everything. I hope Saif recognizes he’s being used for her PR game and do not write back a stupid open letter to “explain” himself to these horrible women.

shes right!
