A day after testing negative for the coronavirus, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut shared ‘lessons from the pandemic’ that she believes might be difficult for some to understand.

After being ‘permanently suspended for repeated violation of Twitter rules,’ the Queen actor took to Instagram and shared five things she learnt while being infected. One of these things, however, was more of a jibe than a lesson.

In quintessential Kangana Ranaut fashion, she took a dig at fellow celebrities who had started fundraisers to contribute towards Covid-19 relief work in India.

In a note shared on her Insta stories, the Manikarnika actor wrote, “Thought of the day might be complex or too evolved for few but some will get it. Lessons from the pandemic 1) No one is insignificant everyone can help but it’s important to recognise your place, role and influence in the society.

She then added, “2) don’t beg from poor people for funds if you are rich.”Kangana felt that those with the means should try and save lives amid the shortage of hospital beds and oxygen. “3) if your influence allows you to arrange for oxygen, beds or medicines for individuals you might save a few,” continued the star.

“4) if you are a prominent personality then don’t run after a few, protect and support the ones who can save millions with the right environment and support given to him,” she said. The 34-year-old concluded, “5) When that one and only power solves more than a billion people’s problems of beds and oxygen in less than a week, don’t forget to acknowledge your contribution to that outcome however small it may be. But remember, you invested yourself in it, not many will recognise your kindness, cause in life some do drama and some simply care.”

Kangana tested positive for Covid-19 on May 8. Calling the virus “small time flu,” she promised to “demolish” it. While announcing that she has recovered from the virus, the actor wrote, “All the demons who are asking for my report because they see the world as a projection of their interior, here it is… A Ram bhakt never lies.”

On the work front, Kangana is waiting for the release of her film Thalaivi which has been postponed due to the second wave of Covid-19.
