Taapsee Gives a Savage Reply to Neena & Rangoli; Promises to Shower them with Bullets

Taapsee Pannu who is known for expressing her opinions without any hesitations seems to be at loggerheads with Rangoli again. After calling the actress a sasti copy of Kangana, Rangoli has now criticized Taapsee’s role in Saand Ki Aankh


Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh’s trailer was released recently and both the actresses are being applauded for not only their acting but also their transformation, as grandmothers. The movie is all set to entertain the audience with the real life story of Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar – India’s oldest women sharpshooters. The movie traces their journey and showcases the hurdles they faced in life to become successful.

Even though the trailer has received much appreciation from the critics and audience alike, it has also received criticism. A few days ago, after a twitter user expressed it's view of casting older actresses like Neena Gupta, Shabana Azmi or Jaya Bachchan as the older versions of Chandro and Prakashi, it led to a debate on Bollywood casting age-appropriate actors for older characters on Twitter. 

Replying to the twitter user, Neena Gupta took to her social media handle and wrote, “Yes i was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai (At least cast us for the role that suit our age).”

Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel who is known for expressing her honest views through her Twitter, revealed that “Kangana was offered this movie and she loved the true story of Grandmom’s achievements she suggested yours and Ramya Krishnan ma’am’s name for lead roles.”

She went on to bash Bollywood’s filthy mind set by writing, “We will never have a Meryl Streep in India if we keep shamelessly displaying older women phobia like this... shame on you all Bolly filth... for promoting sexism in the name of feminism.”

Grateful by Kangana’s gesture, Neena replied to Rangoli by writing, “Oh really how nice of Kangana.”

Well after much criticism from the two, the Badla actress who along with Bhumi is set to play the role of 60-year-old grandma’s while still being in their 30s, took to her official social media handle and expressed her opinions.  

Sharing the screenshot of a long note, Taapsee wrote, “I hope and can only hope this will answer the question once n for all coz honestly now it’s getting boring for us to repeat ourselves. So all you lovely people here goes my RESPONSE - #SaandKiAankh”

In the note she wrote,

I wonder... I just wonder... Do we ever want to embrace the positivity or just keep latching on to negativity and glorifying it to save our lack of risk taking tendencies. Have we really lost the shoulder along with our spine to support people who venture out of their comfort zone to bring about a change???? Or it’s just reserved for two females who at relatively nascent stage of their career venture out to do something, which we were told, most of the people turned down? I wonder .... I just wonder... Did we ask the same question when we all loved what Anupam Kher did in Saaransh. Did we question when Nargis Dutt played mother to Sunil Dutt? Did we question John Travolta for playing a woman in Hairspray? Did we question Eddie Murphy for playing a white Jewish man in Coming to America? Did we question when Aamir Khan played a college kid in 3 Idiots ? And in the future are we going to question Ayushmann Khurrana for playing a gay man in Shubh Mangal Zyaada Saavdhan? Or these lovely allegations and questions ore reserved only for us??? Well even if it is... we thank you from the bottom of our heart for noticing our little effort to bring to you something new, something different, something you all want to comment on, something you all want to attach yourself to, be it in any way, and something that attracted your attention. After all cinema is also about thought. Let’s keep the discussion going and hope your questions will be answered and doubts will be cleared this Diwali kyuki hum toh aa rahe hain iss baar pataake nahi goliyaan barsaane. Thank you for all the love and attention you have bestowed upon our small film with BIG heart!
