Soon after the post was shared, many users, including some celebrities took to the comment section to welcome her. Her fans also joined them and celebrated her comeback to Twitter. Her account does not have a blue tick yet.
Kangana further tweeted a behind-the-scenes video of the film ‘Emergency’ produced by Manikarnika films where she is playing the role of Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. She wrote, “And it’s a wrap !!! Emergency filming completed successfully… see you in cinemas on 20th October 2023.”
In May 2021, Twitter had banned actor Kangana Ranaut’s account after she posted controversial content linked to post-election result violence in Bengal.
A Twitter spokesperson had said, “We’ve been clear that we will take strong enforcement action on behaviour that has the potential to lead to offline harm. The referenced account has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of Twitter Rules specifically our Hateful Conduct policy and Abusive Behaviour policy. We enforce the Twitter Rules judiciously and impartially for everyone on our service.”
Later, after Tesla CEO Elon Musk took over Twitter, Kangana amplified posts from fans urging Elon Musk to restore the actor’s account.
