Tweet Slams Vicky Kaushal, Ranbir Kapoor For Doing TJMM, ZHZB That Spew Hate On Women, Gets Mixed Reactions

The real and reel difference shouldn't be ignored!

Nowadays, people want logic and a believable story in films. I feel, for some viewers, films are no longer a way to escape reality. Fair enough, there are certain perspectives on which we judge films and those criteria depend from person to person. Like, you may or may not agree but a Twitter user criticised two recent Bollywood films of Vicky Kaushal and Ranbir Kapoor- Zara Hatke Zara Bachke and Tu Jhooti Main Makkaar respectively on these grounds. The user bashed the actors’ choices for doing such films which show female characters in a villainous position just for demanding a house of their own after marriage. Well, the comment received mixed reactions from the users, which was quite expected!

The Twitter user by the name of Prapti shed her thoughts on the recent releases of Vicky Kaushal and Ranbir Kapoor. The user pointed out that in both films, the female characters are written to be hated, only because they want separate homes after marriage. The user bashed Vicky Kaushal and Ranbir Kapoor for their hypocritic choice of films because none of them live with their parents after marriage, and happily live with actor-wives separately. 

She called Bollywood, a “Misogynistic” and “Regressive” hellhole. She also called out these films for portraying career-driven and independent women in a negative light.

Now Twitter users’ comments on the films received mixed reactions from other users. Some people highlighted the difference between reel and real in this case. They criticised the user for judging actors’ personal opinions based on their characters in films. In the actors’ defence, some people also pointed out that they were doing their jobs by playing the characters in these films, and were portraying a director or writer’s vision onscreen.

However, there were also some users who agreed with the OG’s comment and further put forth their thoughts on the hypocrisy that exists in society towards women.

TBH, it’s true that commercial films should be watched with a certain POV where you can not always expect it to be politically correct. Also, it is not fair to say that actors endorse the same ideas in real life too. Vicky Kaushal has done movies that highlight the evils of our society like Masaan or serious films like Raazi. Is this criticism really correct?
