Veteran Marathi actor Vikram Gokhale on Sunday supported Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s controversial remarks wherein she had said that what India achieved in 1947 was “bheek” (alms) but the country got the real freedom only in 2014 when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister.

Speaking at a function here in Maharashtra, Vikram Gokhale said what Kangana Ranaut had said was true.

“I agree with Ranaut’s statement. We were given freedom. Many people were just mute spectators when freedom fighters were hanged (during the British Raj). These mute spectators included many senior leaders. They didn’t save the freedom fighters who were fighting against the British,” said Vikram Gokhale, who is known for his roles in Marathi theatre, Bollywood and television.

Gokhale said every political party, including BJP, tries to derive a benefit from controversies.

Replying to a query on the purported communal violence in Tripura and its echo in Amravati and other cities in Maharashtra where incidents of stone-pelting had taken place, the actor said communal riots are a result of vote bank politics. “Every political party plays that (vote bank politics),” he claimed.
