Kangana Ranaut Compares Marvel's Thor To Lord Hanuman, Claims Avengers Are 'Hugely Inspired' By Vedas

Actress Kangana Ranaut is currently busy with the promotions of her upcoming movie ‘Dhaakad’, and the diva is definitely making the most of the opportunity. While she recently extended her support to South superstar Mahesh Babu by agreeing with his ‘Bollywood can’t afford me’ comment at the second trailer launch of ‘Dhaakad’, Kangana’s views on Western superheroes have become the talk of the town.

When quizzed about her approach towards essaying the role of a superhero during a conversation with ETimes, Kangana responded claiming that ‘the West borrows from our mythology’ while comparing popular Marvel superheroes like Thor and Iron Man with Indian mythological characters. “When I look at their superheroes like Iron Man, I feel his armour can be related to Karn’s armour from Mahabharata, Thor wielding the hammer can be compared to Hanumanji and his gada,” Kangana said.

Explaining her stance about the Avengers being inspired by Mahabharata, the ‘Manikarnika’ actress continued, “Their visual perspective is different, but the origins of these superhero stories are hugely inspired by our Vedas.”

While Kangana has been pretty busy with the promotions of ‘Dhaakad’, she recently shared her opinion on Mahesh Babu’s controversial statement and said, “He’s right, Bollywood cannot afford Mahesh Babu,” at the second trailer launch of her upcoming movie. Read more about it here.
