When the first poster of the upcoming film Saand Ki Aankh was released, it received mixed response from the audience as well as celebrities. Directed by Tushar Hiranandani and produced by Anurag Kashyap, Reliance Entertainment and Nidhi Parmar, the film is slated to release on Diwali 2019 and will star Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles. Saand Ki Aankh is the biopic based on the life of sharpshooters Chandro Tomar and her sister-in-law Prakashi Tomar.

There were many who questioned the makers as to why they chose two young actresses to play the role of 60-year-old sharpshooters. In a recent interview, actress Richa Chadha shared her opinion on the same. She said, “I feel happy that today actresses are able to take on more diverse and challenging parts. I think it is fantastic because really, the age of actors is here, the age of good content is here. The fact that there are actresses like Taapsee and Bhumi who are now playing older characters on-screen is pretty remarkable.”

The actress, who played a mother and a grandmother in the Gangs of Wasseypur series at the age of 24, continued to add, “Let's not go into whether they were the right cast, because there was some debate about casting older actresses, but I am sure the filmmaker has a certain vision in mind for casting these two girls in Saand Ki Aankh. So I feel happy when actresses take chances with their reel life depiction. They are doing roles that are not considered glamorous in a conventional sense. Everyone has done it... From Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt, and I think it's a great phase for actresses in the industry.”

Ratna Pathak and Supriya Pathak are ideal choices for this movie. Both are class actresses

But why not take older heroines? Why not take someone like neena Gupta and Shabana Azmi?
