Saand Ki Aankh is one of the most-anticipated films of the year. Directed by Tushar Hiranandani and produced by Anurag Kashyap, Reliance Entertainment and Nidhi Parmar, it is based on the lives of sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar who learnt the sport when they were well in their 60's. Featuring Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu, the biographical drama is slated to hit theatres on 25th October. The trailer of Saand Ki Aankh was launched yesterday and it received positive feedback from viewers.

While most netizens and Bollywood celebs are praising the team of Saand Ki Aankh, there are some who have expressed that it was unfair to cast young actresses when there are so many talented veteran stars closer to the age of Shooter Dadis Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. In fact, Badhaai Ho star Neena Gupta replied to a post regarding the topic and tweeted: "Yes i was just thinking about this hamari umar ke role toe kamsekam humse kara lo bhai.”

Replying to Neena ji’s post, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel tweeted that Kangana was originally offered the film. Reportedly, Kangana left this film and they still made it with young actors. Rangoli also shared that the actress suggested Neena Gupta and Ramya Krishnan’s names to the makers. With so many people raising their voice about the issue, actress Taapsee Pannu decided to put an end to it all with her answer. Along with screenshots, the actress wrote: “I hope and can only hope this will answer the question once n for all coz honestly now it’s getting boring for us to repeat ourselves. So all you lovely people here goes my RESPONSE -#SaandKiAankh”.

Well, not one to hold back, Rangoli replied to Taapsee’s post sharing her opinion. Take a look:


Watch the full movie everyone will get answer why young girls were casted in this film in old age role..

Taapsee is outspoken that's y she replied. Understand..? You better understand.

Tapsee could have ignored like Bhumi but she seems to be enjoying all the publicity which comes along with messing up with the rot sisters.

Kangana has not spoken. Her sister expressed her views. Why is this tapsee obsessed with Kangana?

Yup Kangana ko acting ki A bhi nahi ati. Stardom hai nahi koi. is saal dono films flop hogai bechari depression mein hai.

Please share more jokes.

Tapsee is more successful. loveable, civilized and a better actor and person than this flop, uncivilized, talentless and worst human Kangana.


Jealous sisters.

This is a fair debate but tapsee needs to do inner healing for being rejected from the industry. Life is not fair. Take it a redirection and let go or else you will bleed on people who didn't cut you and will lose perspective. She is so sensitive to criticism. One should add to the debate, no need to get defensive or make comparative remarks. Had tapsee and bhumi were reprising the timeline of dadis younger life or had a aging arch then the casting could be justified. I am starved to see stories of elderly people. Why are we obsessed with the youth? I want to learn about and from stories about women and men of all age groups. It is like a mirror to the future. we are all going to go thru it.

Kangana has said NOTHING so far. Media should report factually. Rangoli can express her views but this is bizaree like Kangana needs to whet everything she wants to say.

Actually ramya krishnan and Neena Gupta would have been so much fun!
