Bhumi Pednekar On Rangoli And The Ageism Controversy: 'She's Another Person In Twitterverse But We Don't Have To Agree'- EXCLUSIVE
Two talented actresses, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar took on the challenge of essaying roles double their ages in Tushar Hiranandani’s Saand Ki Aankh. But, considering the strange nature of netizens, some people felt that senior actresses should have been cast instead of them.

This sparked off a big controversy and in no time, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel lashed out at Taapsee. Even senior actress like Neena Gupta, who has been getting good roles of late, tweeted, “Yes, I was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam hamse karalo bhai." WATCH VIDEO BELOW:

Well, it was the right time to ask the actresses about their take on the whole ageism controversy when we caught up with them last week. Bhumi said, “She (Rangoli) is another person in the Twitterverse. She is not from the acting world, she is not a colleague, we haven’t seen any of her work. So, she has an opinion that we heard. We don’t have to agree with every opinion because every debate has two sides to it.” 

We had even brought you Taapsee’s reaction on Rangoli’s ‘Acting Ka A Bhi Nahin Aata’ comment. Taapsee had said, “Haan nahi aata. Phir bhi picturein mil rahi hain, kya karun? We should question the directors, why are they coming to me? I am sorry but I have signed some 4 films, so you will have to bear with me.” Not just this, Bhumi also added to Taapsee’s sharp reply and said, “True, audiences are also silly na?”

For those who’ve come in late, Rangoli had tweeted, “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!(sic)”
