Taapsee Pannu: Respect is earned not commanded
Taapsee's words seem to be aimed at a tweet from Kangana's digital team, which goes by the name Team Kangana Ranaut on an unverified Twitter account
A new tweet from Taapsee Pannu seems like a dig at Kangana Ranaut, although no names have been taken.
It all started when a user tweeted on Tuesday: "Now everyone is praising Kangana Ranaut for calling out nepotism, I want to show this video to them and ask what is the difference between her and Kjo (Karan Johar)? If it was her prerogative as a director to cut roles of co-stars, why kjo is blamed for his decisions?"
In response to the tweet, Taapsee tweeted on her verified account: "There is no film as 'solo' film , there is no actor such as 'chota mota' actor. A film is a TEAM effort including all departments, all actors. The protagonist in NOTHING without the support of the 'supporting' cast. Respect is EARNED not COMMANDED."
Taapsee's words seem to be aimed at a tweet from Kangana's digital team, which goes by the name Team Kangana Ranaut on an unverified Twitter account. That account had tweeted on Monday: "MissionM (Mission Mangal) or Badla they are male dominated films, Taapsee never gave a solo hit in her whole life. Kanika Dhillon and whole left ecosystem trying to cover up murder of SSR who complained about nepotism and bullying, shame on you all. No one defended him but defending his murders now."
Meanwhile, scriptwriter Kanika Dhillon had also responded to this tweet from her verified account. "Just cos I write an appreciation tweet for a bright-talented-successful woman Taapsee doesn't make me ‘LEFT'! Just cos I feel Kangana is incredibly talented doesnt make me ‘RIGHT'. I can have an opinion without being accused of 'murder-coverups'," Kanika tweeted on Tuesday.
Reacting to Kanika's tweet, Taapsee shared, "So much for being a self proclaimed feminist and 'starting' feminism."
Lipstick Under My Burkha director Alankrita Shrivastava shared this sarcastic cryptic tweet from her verified account: "Wondering what else the Queen started... Cinema itself? The automobile? Did she discover fire? Or better still, maybe she created The Big Bang and that's how the Universe came into being?"
