Taapsee finally broke her silence on Twitter. Check out her tweet :
In a long note to everyone, the Badla actress Taapsee Pannu angrily mentioned as to why people never questioned Aamir Khan when he played college boy in 3 Idiots, Nargis Dutt when she played Sunil Dutt’s mother and for that matter, even John Travolta when he played a woman in Hairspray.
Is Taapsee Pannu’s anger justified?
“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?,”
