Kangana Ranaut on Congress leader's beef-eating claims: 'Baseless rumours... I am a proud Hindu'

New Delhi/IBNS: Actress-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut has lashed out at a Congress leader for claiming the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s Mandi candidate consumed beef in the past.

Congress leader Vijay Wadettiwar has claimed Kangana had earlier shared a post referring to her preference for beef.

Hitting back at Wadettiwar, Kangana said in an X post, "I don’t consume beef or any other kind of red meat, it is shameful that completely baseless rumours are being spread about me, I have been advocating and promoting yogic and Ayurvedic way of life for decades now such tactics won’t work to tarnish my image.

"My people know me and they know that I am a proud Hindu and nothing can ever mislead them, Jai Shri Ram."

Last month, Kangana kick-started her Lok Sabha poll campaign from Himachal Pradesh's Mandi with a fiery speech.

Kangana addressed a massive gathering where she pitched herself as the "sister and daughter" of people from her home state.

"Don't think Kangana is a star or a heroine, consider me as your sister and daughter. All are my relatives," said the 'Queen' star in her first words as a politician.

Her words triggered "Jai Shri Ram" chants from the BJP supporters.

Kangana, who has always remained a supporter of the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, last year had expressed her wish to contest the parliamentary elections.

The 37-year-old actress, who hails from Himachal Pradesh's Bhambla, has a career spanning for two decades.
