Days after Kangana Ranaut reacted to Saif Ali Khan's comments on India's history, the actress has now claimed that she was 'misquoted'. At a press conference held to promote her latest film, Panga, Ranaut was asked about if her reaction to Saif's 'no concept of India before the British' was blown out of proportion.

Kangana claims to be 'misinterpreted' 

Reacting to it, she claimed that she indeed was. She said, "I just put forth my point of view like the way Saif did. But saying that I lashed out at him or I gave him an earful is just pure sensationalism," Kangana said.

For those unaware, Saif Ali Khan in an interview, referring to his super-hit film Tanhaji said, "I don’t think this is history. I don’t think there was a concept of India till the British gave it one." He added, "For some reason I didn’t take a stand. Maybe next time I would. I was very excited to play the role because it’s a delicious role. But when people say this is history, I don’t think this is history. I am quite aware of what the history was. I don’t think there was a concept of India till perhaps the British gave it one. I don’t think there is really any constructive point in arguing about loudly, provided you yourself know why you’re doing it."

Meanwhile, the Internet was disappointed with Saif Ali Khan's statement and gave him some history lessons. Some even shared maps of India that existed even before British rule. Many just concluded by saying, "And then this man calls himself a history buff. *facepalm*". [sic]
