Debates are intensifying over whether to formally adopt “Bharat” as the official name for India. The catalyst for these discussions was an official invitation related to the G-20 summit, where the term ‘President of Bharat’ was used instead of ‘President of India’. This sparked speculation that the government is contemplating a change in the country’s name.
In the midst of this discourse, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranauthas voiced her stance on the matter. Kangana expressed her perspective during an interview, affirming that she finds comfort in referring to the nation as Bharat. She emphasized the importance of acknowledging one’s culture and proudly embracing it, underlining her deep pride in India’s rich cultural heritage. Other prominent figures from the film industry have also shared their viewpoints on this issue.
