This has been happening recently a lot in the B town where particularly fandoms of two a lister actresses started trolling and bashing each other on social media platform especially on Instagram it’s too scary enough to see A lister Tollywood superstar Anushka’s fans trolled Durgamati (2020) fame stellar actress Bhumi for attempting to recreate their favorite actress Anushka’s path breaking performance in Hindi remake Durgamati: The Myth. But now clearing all the speculative stories about rivalry with Bhumi and contrary to what their respective fandoms think, it’s indeed amazing to know that amidst fan wars, Anushka wishes Bhumi luck for Durgamati.
Totally different from what Anushka’s global fandom think about her, the A lister and exemplary south film industry actress Bhaagamathie (2018) fame Anushka has congratulated the Durgamati (2020) fame Bhumi and also wished her good luck which totally proves that fans might have their own thinking of things, but even though amidst fan wars, Anushka wishes Bhumi luck for Durgamati.
Since the highly anticipated trailer release of Durgamati: The Myth released on the internet it has undoubtedly impressed all the fans, critics, netizens and Bollywood fraternity has been lauding and raving Bhumi’s powerful performance in the film but then a controversy erupted when a very huge section of the original Telugu film South industry A lister superstar Anushka who played the lead protagonist in Bhaagamathie (2018) on which the hindi remake is based, were totally not impressed and also got irked by it following which Anushka’s fans started trolling Bhumi on Instagram and twitter where both Anushka and Bhumi constantly trended on Twitter after people started checking the hashtag which was majorly fans comparing Bhumi’s look and performance to their favorite Anushka’s performance and look in the original Telugu version Bhaagamathie and soon they started mocking along with criticizing Bhumi for the same.
As per the fandom, Bhumi didn’t match up to the bar and milestone created by Anushka with her path breaking and cult original performance in Bhaagamathie and also mentioned that sadly Durgamati’s trailer is nothing but a rip off. Durgamati : The Myth releases today on 11th December 2020 on Amazon Prime Video and has been directed by Ashok Garu who had also directed the original hit Telugu film Bhaagamathie (2018).
Amidst all this fan wars between both the actresses loyal fans on social media, Anushka herself took to her official Instagram handle to congratulate Bhumi and the entire team of Durgamati the good luck wishes and also shared the films poster along with a sweetly handwritten message which clearly shows her excitement and eagerness to watch this hindi remake film where her caption for the post read, “Wishing dearest Bhumi Pednekar ,Ashok Garu ,entire cast and crew of #DURGAMATI all the very very very best … looking forward @bhumipednekar @ashokdirector @primevideoin”.
In one of earlier interviews with a leading Indian digital entertainment website, Jisshu Sengupta who will also be seen playing a key important role in Durgamati said, “There will be comparisons. Before the film releases, there are a lot of comments and a lot comparison which happen usually be it a remake or a normal film. Because I don’t know how people get to know the film. After watching the trailer, they get to know everything about the film. So, that’s the power of social media I guess. But then again, you need to watch the film, after watching it they’ll understand…. I can’t say it completely but whatever I have understood, the film is….yes, it is a remake but there are little changes here and there that makes the film much better than Bhaagamathie”.
