Ever since the makers of Saand ki Aankh released the teaser of the film on July 11, the audiences have eagerly waited for the trailer. The makers of the film recently released the trailer of the movie. However, the internet is buzzing after Neena Gupta's tweet. Twitterati is now condemning the actors for promoting ageism.
The audiences believe actors like Neena Gupta, Shabana Azmi could have been a better choice for playing the role of 60-year-old sharpshooter sisters. The entire debate escalated after actor Neena Gupta tweeted:
Yes i was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai https://t.co/6Fmrxn0HbE— Neena Gupta (@Neenagupta001) September 24, 2019
Completely agree with you. No disrespect to @taapsee and @bhumipednekar , but the make up is strange and unconvincing. We still have actors of that age who can earnestly pull it off..it just doesnt feel authentic this way— åhmed (@ahmedd346) September 24, 2019
Truly agree, saw trailer, both of them do not looking old at all.— Amit A Kothekar (@amitkothekar) September 24, 2019
You and Shabana Azmi would have been perfect for these roles. Opportunity lost ! The story looks great but I reckon too many people are talking about the bad make up and younger women looking like complete misfits in those older women characters— CEagle (@CEagles12) September 24, 2019
Absolutely agree... Neither tapsee nor bhumi look authentic... Moreover they haven't picked the accent correctly.... These roles demanded veteran actresses like ne ena, shabana, shefali chhaya, amrita singh...— monica rana (@monicarana21) September 24, 2019
So agree. That was my first thought. We know Bhumi and Taapsee are wonderful actresses but this role really needed someone like you and Shabana ji to lend that depth.— Subhor Khanna (@subhor) September 24, 2019
Actor Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel joined the bandwagon and supported Gupta by revealing an interesting detail. Chandel revealed how the makers had initially offered the role of Paanu to Kangana. But, the Tanu Weds Manu actor suggested Neena Gupta and Bahubali star Ramya Krishnan's name for the role.
Neena ji 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 but these men can’t remove deeply rooted sexism from their filthy brains ... https://t.co/f81LXDE5hg— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) September 24, 2019
