<p>For the benefit of the unaware, Smriti Irani said that menstruation is a normal aspect of life and shouldn’t be seen as a “handicap” necessitating specific leave arrangements during her Wednesday response to MP Manoj Kumar Jha in the Rajya Sabha.</p>
<p>In response, Kangana wrote, “Working woman is a myth, there hasn’t been a single non-working woman in the history of mankind, from farming to house chores to raising kids women have always been working and nothing has come in the way of their commitment to their families o community or nation.”</p>
<p>She said, “Unless it’s some specific medical condition women don’t need paid leaves for periods, please understand it’s periods, not some illness or handicap.”</p>
<p>Kangana is quite active on social media and often expresses her opinions on a range of topics.</p>
<p>In the meanwhile, Kangana’s most recent film appearance was in Tejas, where she portrayed IAF officer Tejas Gill, who, together with Anshul Chauhan and Varun Mitra, is tasked with rescuing an Indian spy. The movie did not do well at the box office when it was released in October 2023.</p>
<p>In addition, Kangana appeared as a dancer in the Tamil comedy-horror follow-up Chandramukhi 2. The actress and R Madhavan, her co-star in Tanu Weds Manu, will next work together on an unnamed project. Emergency is the second film that she is directing.</p>
