Addressing the issue head-on, Kangana questioned the social stigma attached to terms like 'porn star', citing examples of people like Sunny Leone receiving respect despite their association with the adult entertainment industry. “Are the terms 'soft porn' or 'porn star' objectionable? No. It is simply a word that is not socially acceptable. For the respect porn stars receive in India, ask Sunny Leone, nowhere else in the world. world is like that.”

During her defense, Kangana spoke about the distinction between different forms of art, stating that intellectually stimulating work is of greater importance than what she called “mass art.” She compared her own work to Urmila's, highlighting her avoidance of “item numbers”, which are often criticized for objectifying women.

Delving further into the debate around the representation of women in Bollywood, Kangana questioned why terms like 'tandoori murgi' and 'item girl' are accepted while 'soft porn actor' receives criticism. She claimed, “If these actresses are comfortable with words like tandoori murgi, item girl, Sheila ki Jawani, why is it considered violative? In fact, if they are comfortable with this, why do you want to embarrass them? Personally, I don't think I had any intention to embarrass her (Urmila Matondkar) because she is very comfortable in that role.”

Despite the controversy, Kangana expressed respect for Urmila's artistic skills and recognized seduction as a legitimate art form. Kangana said, “All I tried to say is that I respect your art and seduction is an art form. If I respect your art, why don't you respect mine?

Talking about the professional front, the 37-year-old upcoming actress-turned-politician will be seen in Emergency.
