Veteran actor Vikram Gokhale has also supported Kangana Ranaut's statement that we got freedom in begging. Amidst controversies on social media, Vikram Gokhale has supported Kangana, saying that we got real freedom (2014) after Prime Minister Modi came to power. In an event held in Pune, Maharashtra, Gokhale said that what Ranaut had said is true. In his interview, Gokhale has also said a lot for Prime Minister Modi.

Gokhale says, ''I agree with Ranaut's statement. We were given freedom (under British rule). Many freedom fighters were hanged and at that time big people did not try to save them. They just remained mute spectators. There were many senior leaders among these mute spectators. They did not save the freedom fighters who were fighting against the British."

Vikram Gokhale further said "I am not a blind supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. When PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah campaign, I do not agree with many of their points but yes, I support them when they work in the interest of the nation.''

He says, ''Every political party does that (vote bank politics).' On the political scenario in Maharashtra, Gokhale said the former allies- Shiv Sena and BJP should come together again for the betterment of the country."

Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patil said it could be Kangana Ranaut's personal sentiment that she experienced independence after 2014. She can praise PM's work but she has no right to comment on the freedom we got in 1947. This is completely wrong."

Kangana had courted controversy by saying that India got 'real independence' in 2014. Many cases have been registered against Kangana after her statement  "independence in begging".
