Taapsee Pannu responds to comments on ageism, Rangoli Chandel strikes back
Taapsee Panny recently cleared the air surrounding her role in Saandh Ki Aankh, however, Rangoli Chandel is not happy with the actress comparing herself to legends
Bollywood either loves controversies or is utterly unable to avoid them in the current age. Every now and then, a particular someone is seen ruing about a specific something and their social media rants surely more often than not, tend to create waves. This time around, it’s the trailer of Saandh Ki Aankh that has been causing quite a stir. Earlier today, it was Bollywood veteran actress Neena Gupta who complained that the roles of aged women should have been given to women of the old age. Kangana Ranaut’s sister, Rangoli Chandel wasn’t one to back down either which sparked a social media debate.
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.— taapsee pannu (@taapsee) 24 September 2019
So all you lovely people here goes my RESPONSE -#SaandKiAankh pic.twitter.com/guldaTWaks
Now, there is another addition to the debate. Saandh Ki Aankh star, Taapsee Pannu has jumped in to give her opinion on the matter. In a series of photos, the actress asked if people ever want to embrace the positivity anymore or if they just want to keep latching on to negativity and glorifying the lack of risk-taking tendencies. She wrote, “Did we ask the same question when we all loved what Anupam Kher did in Saaransh. Did we question when Nargis Dutt played a mother to Sunil Dutt? Did we question when Aamir Khan played a college kid in 3 idiots? Are these lovely allegations and questions reserved for us only?”
Acting ka A bhi nahin aata & comparing urself to all legends bhai ja thodi acting seekh le tacky silver hair & sasta prosthetic won’t make u an actor,wat about body language f a 60 year old? Where is the aged voice?Longing fr gone youth in one’s eyes?Where is acting So funny! https://t.co/zQMWbcbIzl— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) 24 September 2019
Taapsee then also shared that she is still going to be unhinged by the comments coming her way because she feels that it was something that attracted people to the film. Rangoli, on the other hand, struck back at the actress. Mocking Taapsee, she wrote, “Acting ka A bhi nai aata and you’re comparing yourself to legends. Learn how to act because this tacky silver hair and cheap prosthetic won’t make you an actor. What about the body language of a 60-year-old? Where is the aged voice? Longing for youth in one’s eyes? Where is the acting?” It looks like this feud is not about to end anytime soon.
