The trailer of the film released yesterday and ‘Badhaai Ho’ actress Neena Gupta expressed her anger about casting Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu in ‘Saand Ki Aankh’
The film ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ has casted Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu in lead roles. Yesterday, the trailer of the film was released and it seems to be an entertaining inspirational drama.
The film is based upon a real story which is about the shooter dadis, and for that Bhumi and Taapsee had to transform through makeup to play Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. But, seems like actress Neena Gupta is not happy about it.
Here’s why? A netizen commented after watching the trailer, I love @bhumipednekar and @taapsee but I kinda wish older actors were cast in these roles. Could you imagine @Neenagupta001 and @AzmiShabana or Jaya Bachchan? #SaandKiAankh
The user commented how these three ladies Neena Gupta, Shabana Azmi, and Jaya Bachchan would have been a better fit for Shooter Dadi’s role but still, the makers decided to go with the contemporary names who are in their early 30’s but are playing the roles of women double their age in the film. On this, actress Neena Gupta replied ” Yes i was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai”

After this, another netizen, tweeted, Yes. While the trailer for #SaandKiAankh wasn’t bad; I couldn’t help but think what Neena Gupta and Ratna Pathak Shah would have done with the film, As it is, Bollywood doesn’t write too many roles for women over 40. When a story like that does come up, why cast young actresses?
Neena Gupta replied on this through her tweet, I also liked d trailer and i have great respect for both d actors chalo lets wish the film good luck also to anurag kashyap who i am very fond of chalo apna time ayega.
Talking about the film, Saand Ki Aankh’s cast, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar have put a brave foot forward by embracing wrinkles at an early point in their careers. Dressed in the traditional Haryana attire, shirt and ghagra with a dupatta covering the head, the two actors play sisters-in-law (Prakashi and Chandro) who realise their hidden talent at an advanced age.
Neena Gupta will be soon seen in ‘Shubh Mangal Zyaada Savdhaan’
“Saand Ki Aankh” is a Reliance Entertainment film, which marks the directorial debut of scriptwriter Tushar Hiranandani. It is jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap and Nidhi Parmar. The film is slated to hit the theaters on Diwali 2019.
