Bollywood Author-screenwriter Kanika Dhillon has as soon as once more lashed out at writer-director Navjot Gulati who claimed that Kanika’s ‘personal relationship’ within the manufacturing home helped her get a separate author’s credit score slate within the not too long ago launched trailer of Taapsee Pannu starrer ‘Haseen Dillruba’. As per Navjot Kanika’s marriage to an in depth ally of the producer, Aanand L Rai helped her achieve a particular spot within the not too long ago launched trailer. Kanika is married to screenwriter Himanshu Sharma.
Navjot, recognized for writing Jai Mummy Di and Ginny Weds Sunny, wrote in a tweet that the important thing to scoring a ‘top billing as screenwriter’ is to ‘marry into the production house’. The trailer of the film not too long ago dropped, and Kanika had obtained distinguished credit as the author of the mission. Navjot wrote in a current tweet that the important thing to scoring a ‘top billing as screenwriter’ is to ‘marry into the production house’. Kanika, calling out the author, stated that the comments reeked of $exism, and added that Navjot has a ‘pea-sized brain’.
In an interview with ETimes Kanika stated, “Inhone paan ki dukaan ke neeche baithe aurton pe comment karne wali admiyon ki mansikta darshayi hai. Agar koi aurat tarakki karti hai, toh pan ki peek nikal ke yeh log kehte hai iske pati ya baap ki wajah se. Yahi soch toh badalni hai. Get well soon Navjyot ji. Hope apki behene khoob tarakkki karein aur apke jaise ghatiya soch wale log unki mehnat aur tarakki ko gaali na de.”
Earlier Kanika tweeted, “Hi @Navjotalive, I am quite shocked by ur extremely SEXIST – MYSOGINIST and bordering on IDIOTIC comment Neither will I list down my body of work cos ur pea sized brain will not be able to process a successful woman making it on her own! U may hav a brain freeze! Have a good day.” She wrote in a subsequent tweet, “And mr @Navjotalive because of writers like YOU – who display their STUPIDITY on something tht should be Applauded as a welcome step by the writing fraternity- other very deserving writers do not get top Billing as is their right— shame on u!”
Actress Taapsee Pannu supported Kanika, and wrote in a tweet, “A progressive call to credit a writer turned into a $exist rant by the age old misogyny of crediting a woman’s success to the house she marries in or the man she married. Your righteous call for equal credit can’t be overtaken by the bitterness in u.” Navjot in his tweet posted on June 11 had written, “If you want top billing as a Screenwriter in a trailer(something that should be the norm)You need to marry into the production house. Once the Writer becomes a family member, is treated like an Actor-Star. #Goals.”
The upcoming movie ‘Haseen Dillruba’ additionally stars Vikrant Massey and Harshwardhan Rane. Directed by Vinil Mathew, ‘Haseen Dillruba’ is about to premiere on Netflix on July 2.
