Varanasi, May 19: Amid the ongoing controversy over the Gyanvapi mosque, actress Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday said that ‘Lord Shiva doesn’t need a structure; he exists in each and every particle in Kashi’.
Kangana, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming movie Dhaakad, visited Kashi Viswanath Temple to seek blessings for her movie. She also performed a special Ganga Arti.
Kangana said, “Just like there is Shri Krishna everywhere in Mathura and Lord Shri Ram everywhere in Ayodhya, similarly Lord Shiva exists everywhere.”
“Lord Shiva doesn’t need a structure, he exists in each and every particle of Kashi”, added Kangana raising the ‘Har Har Mahadev’ slogan.
Her statement comes after the Supreme Court asked the Varanasi district magistrate to secure the wazu khana area where a Shivling was claimed to have been found during a videographic survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex, without restricting the rights of Muslims to offer namaz.
Dhaakad, which also stars Arjun Rampal in a key role, is directed by Razneesh Razy Ghai and is backed by Deepak Mukut and Sohel Maklai, and co-produced by Hunar Mukut. It was earlier slated for a Pan- India release in April but due to the third wave, the makers shifted its release to May 27.
The film will be made available in our languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. Dhaakad touted to be Bollywood’s first spy-thriller will be led by a female star and is made on a very big budget.
