‘Manmarziyaan’ starring Taapsee Pannuu, Vicky Kaushal and Abhishek Bachchan released 14th September and the movie have garnered good amount of positive review. The movie is also going steady in the box office but since the movie got released, the Sikh community have started protesting against the portrayal of Sikh in the movie.
Members of the Sikh community in Ambala expressed their displeasure over the smoking scenes in the movie. As per reports, a petition was also filed in the Jammu and Kashmir High Court on Tuesday by the Sikh organisation about the same. After the controversy, the producers removed the smoking scenes in the film but the director of the film, Anurag Kashyap and Taapsee Pannuu got really angry about the matter.
Taapsee, who plays Rumi ‘Manmarziyaan’ became very vocal about the whole controversy and she sarcastically tweeted: "I am sure this edit will assure that no Sikh will ever smoke and no woman will ever think about anyone else while getting married in a Gurudwara. This surely will make Waheguru proud and assures that my religion is the purest, most righteous and peaceful! Proud"
Next thing we know, she was flourished with trolls but ain’t in the mood to let go the trollers. Instead, she started reacting sharply and she is winning all hearts and morals with her replies. One of the users tried to brush off her moralistic 'gyan', and Miss Pannu, gave it back to him the best possible way:
She wrote, "#Protest I want full drug test outside the gurudwara."
She was replying to almost everyone who was trying to troll her.
Also when a person introduced her to the new rule of Sikhs, 'not allowed to get married in Gurudwaras a night after you smoked up', she replied with this:
To another user, she replied, "Uffo ab toh there will be a protest to remove that singh from your name. You have totally disgraced the entire Sikh community by enjoying a film where characters CHOSE to lead a certain life without taking approvals from leaders of certain sort. Tch tch. So sad."
Taapsee, you go girl!
