Kangana Ranaut refused Saand Ki Aankh to oppose sexism, reveals sister Rangoli Chandel

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar‘s upcoming release Saand Ki Aankh is making quite a lot of noise, especially owing to the powerful story it is going to tell. The film revolves around Chandro Tomar and Prakashi Tomar, respectively world’s oldest and second oldest sharpshooters, hailing from Uttar Pradesh. It is the story of two women who weren’t bogged down by age, began shooting when they were well into the old age, and stand as globally acclaimed shooters right now.

However, the film landed up amid debates ever since it was announced. Many were of the opinion that older actors should’ve been roped in, rather than younger actors stepping in for older characters. On that note, Kangana Ranaut‘s sister Rangoli Chandel revealed that the film was first offered to Kangana who loved the script but turned it down to fight the clichéd ageism and sexism. In her Tweet, Rangoli claims that Kangana even suggested Neena Gupta and Ramya Krishnan’s names.

Rangoli further went on to slam Bollywood for promoting sexism in the name of feminism.

On the other hand, it looks like the criticism has irked Taapsee as well. She took to Twitter to share her stand on the age debate as well.

Directed by Tushar Hiranandani, Saand Ki Aankh releases on 25th October 2019.
