Vikram Gokhale is a veteran Marathi actor who came down in the support of Kangana Ranaut over her controversial remark that India got its independence in 2014 and not in 1947 and we got independence “bheek” (alms) and the country actually got real freedom when Narendra Modi became our prime minister.

This is what Gokhale said while speaking at a function in Maharashtra, “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 Gokhale, who is known for his roles in Marathi theatre, Bollywood and television.

Both parties should try to win the people’s confidence. I feel political parties should not deceive people because people can punish them,” he said.
