Kangana Ranaut, the lead actress in the upcoming Tamil film ‘Chandramukhi 2’, has been subjected to severe criticism for her Bharatanatyam performance in the film’s song ‘Swagathaanjali‘. The song, composed by Oscar-winning musician MM Keeravaani, has sparked controversy on social media platforms, with many users accusing Kangana of mishandling the traditional dance form.
‘Chandramukhi 2’, starring Kangana Ranaut and Raghava Lawrence in the lead roles, recently unveiled its first single, ‘Swagathaanjali’. While MM Keeravaani’s classical composition was widely appreciated, Kangana’s portrayal of Bharatanatyam in the song faced heavy criticism from the online community.
Social Media Backlash
Several Twitter users took to the platform to express their disappointment with Kangana’s Bharatanatyam performance. Many users accused her of not doing justice to the intricate art form, and some even referred to her performance as a “butchering” of Bharatanatyam.
In contrast to the negative comments, some of Kangana’s fans defended her by emphasizing her overall appearance in the film and expressing confidence in her ability to excel in her role.
