Two of the most talented actresses of Bollywood, Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar will be starring in the much-awaited biographical film Saand Ki Aankh. Based on the lives of sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, the film has been directed by Tushar Hiranandani and produced by Anurag Kashyap, Reliance Entertainment and Nidhi Parmar. Ever since the first look of the film, featuring Taapsee and Bhumi as 60-year-old women, was released many people have raised their voice calling the makers unfair for casting young actresses.

The actresses have also been receiving backlash and netizens have been questioning why veteran stars were not approached for the roles. Opening up about the same, Taapsee shared, “I was pretty happy about being criticized for playing an aged person at this juncture of my film career. Perhaps people have seen me in different young roles, so they are unable to digest it.”

Recently, veteran actresses also took to their social media handles to express their opinion on the topic and shared how they should get roles better suited to them. Reacting to the criticism, Taapsee said, “Ek kam karti hoon main acting karna chhod deti hoon (I will do one thing, I will stop acting), and only play characters of my age and girls from Delhi. We are actors, so should we stop acting? As an actor, I will sometimes play characters of different ages. We should stop being camera actors, I think. I know it’s not an easy visual, as these women pick up guns at the age of 60, and the film showcases their story from half of their current ages.”
