Vani Kapoor who is the inhouse heroine of Yash Raj Film(all her 5 film so far are Yash Raj Productions) was a target of terrifying trolling earlier week after she wore a low-cut top with ‘Ram’ written on it.
Or, perhaps the word ‘target’ is inaccurate , as the whole point of using a religious inscription to appear boldly fashionable is to invite the wrath of the radicals.And why just radicals? The cleavage-revealing top with ‘Ram’ written on it is objectionable to any rational human being.You can’t play around with religious sentiments. It amounts to flirting with danger.This may be Ms Kapoor’s way of getting noticed. But it is dangerous, subversive and highly inappropriate.
A prominent spokesperson of the film industry says, “I don’t want to say anything openly since it would only give this lady more publicity. But would she dare to wear something similar with ‘Allah’ written on it? The whole idea is to stir up a controversy. But we live in dangerous times. Gaining attention by inciting religious sentiments can be very harmful.”
Vani Kapoor who started off as the second lead in Yash Raj Films’ Shudh Desi Romance quickly graduated to playing Ranveer Singh’s lead in the Parisian fiasco Befikre. Recently she figured in the Yash Raj blockbuster War. She will next be seen in Yash Raj’s Shamsher with Ranbir Kapoor.
Producer Aditya Chopra who clearly has a lot of faith in Ms Kapoor’s talent, should counsel her to rein-in her enthusiasm .Wearing your religion on your heart is fine. But she doesn’t have to be so blatant about it.
