Twitter has stood in support of veteran actor Urmila Matondkar after Kangana Ranaut makes derogatory remarks against her. During an interview with a leading news channel, Kangana called Urmila ‘a soft porn star’ and said that nobody knows Urmila for her acting.
Kangana had said, “Even Urmila, she is a soft porn star. I know it’s very blatant. But she isn’t known for her acting for sure. What is she known for? For doing soft porn right? If she can get a ticket, why won’t I get a ticket?”
Twitter Supports Urmila Matondkar:
This has angered people on social media, including several Bollywood celebrities. Swara Bhaskar took to Twitter and wrote, “Urmila Matondkar ji, remembering ur outstanding performances in Masoom, Chamatkaar, Rangeela, Judaai, Daud, Satya, Bhoot, Kaun, Jungle, Pyaar Tuney Kya Kiya, Tehzeeb, Pinjar, Ek Hasina Thi.. among others and have marvelled at your acting chops & brilliant dancing! Love u”.
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha made a love filled tweet as he wrote, “”Just felt like saying this to one of the most beautiful, elegant, evocative, expressive actresses ever. Sending you love Urmila Matondkar”.
Pooja Bhatt wrote on her Twitter handle, “Urmila, you are a legend. Rangeela was a treat visually, emotionally and you raised the bar for all of us in so many ways. You left us all,co-actors and an entire generation of movie goers awestruck! Sensuality & dignity.. two qualities you combined & embodied. Respect!”
A twitter user bashed Kangana as he wrote, “She is not a soft porn star, but what if she was also. What’s so wrong in that. I’d rather be a soft porn star than a foul mouthed disrespectul narcissist.”
And there are many such tweets!
