After National Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut made a bold confession that she was the “unwanted child” in her family, her father has opened up about the ‘backward’ thinking about girls in their village. He says the ‘Queen’ star’s birth was not a “celebration” in their house.
Amardeep Ranaut, who stays in Himachal Pradesh, opened up about his daughter Kangana’s latest statement, and told IANS: “When she was born, that time the atmosphere in our village about a girl child was very backward. It was not like a celebration, but it was more like a funeral.
“The villagers used to come to our house and say, ‘Oh, now a daughter again’. So, there was no celebration, nor did we distribute sweets. We were hoping that since we had lost our son, another son would come back.”
The actress, who has delivered critically acclaimed and commercially successful films one after the other in Bollywood, just earlier this week opened up about her ordeal as a girl child in her family. She had even spoken about a male child that her parents had before having her elder sister Rangoli, but he had died within 10 days of his birth.
