'Saand Ki Aankh' has been creating a buzz in Bollywood since Bhumi Pednekar and Taapsee Pannu are playing the challenging role of shooter daadis.
Watched the film Saand Ki Aankh with my family last evening.. The story of Shooter Dadis, Chandro and Prakashi Tomar is very inspiring. Congrats @taapsee and @bhumipednekar pic.twitter.com/lqrQZoxajv— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) October 23, 2019
Lately, the duo faced a lot of criticism for playing the role of shooter grannies, which is in the backdrop of controversy regarding casting young actors for characters who are double their age.
Earlier, in an interview with ANI, the duo dedicated the movie to mothers and said "The movie is dedicated to all the mothers and women as they are our inspiration behind playing this role. I don't think our mothers have rejoiced even a single moment for themselves. So, it is a tribute to all the mothers."
Thank you so much sir ❤️ We are so thrilled you enjoyed it. It truly was overwhelming and a big thank you to your family too :) #SaandKiAankh https://t.co/bhN35Lb7HX— bhumi pednekar (@bhumipednekar) October 23, 2019
