Few days back Shobhaa De had tweeted about Indian Olympians clicking selfies at the Rio Olympics and wasting ‘money and opportunity’. The tweet was in bad taste and didn’t go down well with people and the author received a lot of flak for it. Kanagana Ranaut is one actress who always speaks her mind and didn’t stay quiet this time either.
Goal of Team India at the Olympics: Rio jao. Selfies lo. Khaali haat wapas aao. What a waste of money and opportunity.

Recently, at the launch of a short film on Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, when asked to comment on the matter, she said, “It is a very disturbing thing to say to people, who are representing us. It can be also a very personal opinion but being such a credible author and a powerful woman who people look up to, for someone like that saying this is disheartening. It is not a good news, for sure. I hope our athletes don’t get disheartened and we need to do our best.”
Well said as always, girl!
