Actor Abhay Deol is one of the few celebrities in Bollywood who is known for voicing his opinion on social media unapologetically. Today the actor took to his Instagram handle to slam his one of his own film ‘Raanjhana’ helmed by Aanand L.Rai. Accusing the Sonam Kapoor and Dhanush starrer for glorifying sexual harassment, he pointed out several “insights” from the film as suggested by a personal blogger on the internet.
Reposting the “clear” and “valid” pointers from the user, he wrote, “Such clear and valid insight from @oldschoolrebel9 regarding the film Raanjhana. History will not look kindly at this film for its regressive message. It’s been a theme in Bollywood for decades, where a boy can (and should), pursue a girl until she relents. Only in cinema does she do that willfully. In reality we have seen time and again that it leads to sexual violence of some sort. Glorifying it on screen only leads to blaming the victim, as @oldschoolrebel9 explains it so brilliantly. Please do take time out to read her observations in the pics above.#shedoesnotlikeyou #growup #gloryfyingsexualharrasment”
