Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has been quite vocal since the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. She recently shared her views on mental health which raised a lot of eyebrows. She claimed to have taken ‘private tuitions’ in human psychology, after which a Twitter user hit out at her, saying that ‘visiting a psychiatrist is not counted as private tuitions in psychology’. The user also slammed her for knowing ‘everything about everyone everywhere’.
Kangana replied to the user and wrote, “I did screen writing in New York we were taught human psychology as a part of the 6 months course I extended psychology classes with my professor for another two years, I might not know everything but yes I know a lot, does that hurt ?”

The actress had earlier claimed that there is ‘no valid medical proof of mental illness’. This comment was countered by a neuroscientist who said that she should not comment unless she can back her statements with ‘learned information or experiences’.
Replying to a Twitter user Kangana had said, “I know about grey matter, neurons and their interactions through electrical events n neurotransmitter, I have been a science student, have done a project on brain where I constructed 3D model of human brain, I have also taken private tuitions of human psychology.”
In a recent interview with Republic TV, Kangana also took on Deepika Padukone. “Deepika Padukone suddenly says in 2015-16 that she was dumped in 2008 and is feeling depressed about it now. After eight years. After her break-up, she had affairs, she was doing well professionally, she dressed up to go out and everything. She even got married but the depression continued. What kind of depression is this, which happens after eight years?”
“If @deepikapadukone says she suddenly got depressed for a break up which happened 10 years ago, we believe her so give me and Sushant same respect if I say I am not mentally ill or if Sushant’s father says he wasn’t mentally ill believe us also na. Why you forcing illness on us?,” Kangana wrote on Twitter.
