Taapsee Pannu supports ‘Kedarnath’ writer Kanika Dhillon as she slams Navjot Gulati for his sexist remarks
‘Kedarnath’ writer Kanika Dhillon has slammed screenwriter Navjot Gulati for his recent post. While the ‘Jai Mummy Di’ writer had tweeted the key to scoring a ‘top billing as screenwriter’ is to ‘marry into the production house’, Kanika slammed his ‘sexist’ remarks.
Stating that Navjot has a ‘pea brain’, Kanika Dhillon wrote, “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.
” In a second post she wrote, “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!”
And now her comments have received support from Taapsee Pannu. The ‘Thappad’ actress replied to Kanika’s Tweet and wrote, “A progressive call to credit a writer turned into a sexist 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.”
