Kangana Ranaut posted a video of the song Aaiye Meharban, which featured the late Madhubala, and stated that seduction has nothing to do with ‘vulgarity and raunchy item numbers.’ Kangana re-shared a clip originally posted by a fan account on Instagram Stories on Monday.

Sharing the clip, Kangana wrote, “Sensuality and seduction has nothing to do with vulgarity and raunchy item numbers… this song has everything yet there is no objectification of woman and her body parts…”

Aaiye Meharban is a song from Shakti Samanta’s 1958 crime thriller Howrah Bridge. In addition to Madhubala, the film stars Ashok Kumar, Om Prakash, and KN Singh.

Swara Bhasker tweeted a video of Kangana performing a song from her 2013 film Rajjo last year. Kangana had written, quoting a news report, “Whenever I impose difficult questions on A listers all B listers come like sepoys, item numbers is essentially a song which isn’t consequential to the plot of the film, uses derogatory language for woman, even when I played a nautch girl I made sure it’s not derogatory for woman.”

Kangana also tweeted, “These B grades won’t understand but I said no to item songs of Sanjay Bhansali and Farah Khan also, which made few A listers over night sensations, I sacrificed a lot to be who I am today, back off B grade hyenas if these directors offer you even a passing you will go crawling.”

The incident occurred prior to Kangana’s Twitter account being suspended.

Meanwhile, Kangana will be seen in the period drama Emergency, in which she will play late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Kangana’s first solo directorial effort. In addition to Kangana, the film features prominent performances by Anupam Kher, Mahima Chaudhry, Vishak Nair, and Shreyas Talpade. Kangana will also play Bengali theatre legend Binodini Dasi, aka Noti Binodini, in Pradeep Sarkar’s film.
