Sharing a video of Prime Minister Narendra Modi talking about working round the clock to build the nation, Kangana wrote in an Instagram story, “We need to normalise compulsive work culture and stop waiting for the weekend and moaning about Monday memes. This is all western brainwashing. We are not a developed nation yet.”

What did Murthy say?

Previously, Infosys founder Narayana Murthy had said something similar, drawing criticism from the country’s working population. In a conversation with former Infosys CFO Mohandas Pai on the first episode of 3one4 Capital’s podcast ‘The Record’ earlier this year, Murthy had said that young people should work overtime to compete with leading economies.

“India’s labour productivity is one of the lowest in the world. If we do not improve our labour productivity, we will not be able to compete with the countries which have made tremendous progress. If we want to compete with the fastest growing countries like China and Japan, we need to improve our labour productivity,” he had said.

“That is why I demand that our young people say: ‘This is my country. I want to work 70 hours a week,'” he added.

MP Kangana Ranaut

Making her debut in politics and elections, Ranaut defeated her closest Congress rival Singh by over 74,000 votes in the Lok Sabha elections in her home state of Mandi.

A day after her election victory, Kangana said she was slapped in the face and manhandled by a woman CISF officer during security check at Chandigarh airport on Thursday. The ugly fracas erupted two days after her victory in the Mandi Lok Sabha polls in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

Policewoman Kulwinder Kaur, who was apparently upset with Ranaut’s stance on the farmers’ protests, has been suspended and an FIR has been filed against her, officials said.
