Lyricist Javed Akhtar responded to actor Kangana Ranaut's 'bheekh' comment. Recently, speaking at a summit, Kangana Ranaut had said that what India got in 1947 was ‘bheekh (handout)’ and the country got its true freedom in 2014, referring to when the BJP came to power under PM Modi.

Taking to Twitter, Javed Akhtar wrote, "It is totally understand(able). Why would all those who had nothing to do with freedom movement feel bad if some(one) calls our freedom just a 'bheek'."
