A while back, Kangana Ranaut shared an interview of ‘Manikarnika’ action director Nick Powell and tweeted that she was better than Hollywood actor Tom Cruise when it comes to action and people asked her to embrace humility.
Now, the actress has shared a photo of the first female licensed doctors from India, Japan, and Syria wearing the traditional attire of their respective countries and claimed that contemporary achievers in today’s age wouldn’t represent their culture but get photographed in “American jeans n rags” instead, reports NDTV.
Appreciation tweet for ancient women who not only represented their individuality but their entire civilisation,cultures and nations. Today if such achievers are to be clicked they will all wear torn American jeans n rags like blouses,representing nothing but American marketing. pic.twitter.com/0k2yjUuF07

Some people have questioned why a female achiever’s clothes are a topic of debate rather than lauding her talent and skills.
Doctors, Engineers, Scientist, developer, artist. It's a profession, you learn certain skills to practice it. Your clothes do not fucking matter!. If you have a heart attack, you need doc who can save ur life. It doesn't matter what he/she wears, as long as the job is done! https://t.co/WH3TH9MPlV

When ever there is a talk about woman who has excelled in some field the discussion is always about her clothing/family/culture.
It is almost never the case for a man. https://t.co/GPOLJ7VYaa

I believe that women of our generation worked very hard- we had to be good daughters, good students, good sisters, good wives & good mothers- we r carrier oriented too- our mothers etc were home makers only- what issue in wearing torn jeans

You are comparing 19th century women attire with 21st century? So you mean all should be Saree clad all the time, irrespective of their age, profession and background? Want to praise these achievers, Pls do will join you. But why compare this way?

Maybe instead of yapping about "wEsTeRn cLoTheS" you try and bring to light the traditional embroidery, artistry and crafts of our nation like Jamdani, Kantha, Rogan, Muslin and many more. Why don’t you completely reject western clothing, I'd love to see you do that. https://t.co/N9hl67yPGz
