After actor Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account was completely suspended for — based on an organization spokesperson — “repeated violation of Twitter rules”, designers Anand Bhushan and Rimzim Dadu, too, have determined to sever their affiliation with the actor, presumably because of a few of her latest political feedback, which many have discovered distasteful.
In an announcement shared on Twitter, Bhushan wrote, “In view of certain events today, we have taken a decision to remove all collaboration images with Kangana Ranaut from our social media channels. We also pledge never to be associated with her in any capacity in the future. We as a brand do not support hate speech.”

Dadu’s assertion, shared on an Instagram story, was on comparable strains, previous with, “Never too late to do the right thing.”
The transfer got here after the actor’s touch upon the alleged violence in West Bengal, put up the Assembly election outcomes. Responding to the suspension, Ranaut instructed ANI, “Twitter has only proved my point they’re Americans and by birth, a white person feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they want to tell you what to think, speak or do. I have many platforms I can use to raise my voice, including my own art in the form of cinema. But my heart goes out to the people of this nation who have been tortured, enslaved, and censored for thousands of years, and still, there is no end to the suffering.”
Her Instagram, nevertheless, continues to be operational.
Actor Swara Bhasker applauded the designers’ choice.
