Director Vivek Agnihotri Takes Dig At Dahaad Or Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo ? Rips Apart Cliche Portrayal Of Rajasthani Characters And Over Groomed Cop

Vivek Agnihotri is always in news for making controversial remarks against Bollywood specially top production houses and actors. Today Vivek Agnihotri tweeted and took indirect dig at recently released series Dahaad directed by Reema Kagti and headlined by Sonakshi Sinha, Gulashan Devaiah, Vijay Verma and Sohum Shah.

We are not sure whether he was referring to Dahaad or recently released another series Saas Bahu Aur Falmingo with Rajasthani background.

Vivek Agnihotri tweeted following:

“Few observations:

  1. Bollywood actors think that by saying हुक़ुम… म्हारो… थारो… they can become Rajasthani characters. Rest of the dialogues they can speak in their Punjabi, Bambaiya, Tamil, Kannada accent.
  2. To be a cop you just need to wear tight fitting khaki clothes. With tons of makeup.
  3. They think by doing dull and boring acting, speaking dialogues so softly so no one can understand is good, cool acting.
  4. If you make ultra modern looking, fair and lovely, urban actors utter few Rajasthani words and abuse unnecessarily, the audience is so stupid that they will believe that these actors are indeed Rajasthani.
  5. In the scorching heat of Rajasthan, you just can’t carry so many layers of make up.
  6. Pl stop fitting your Western Movies inspirations in Rajasthan.
  7. Audience is not dumb. You are. Now repeat this million times.”

Here is the tweet:

Vivek Agnihotri Worked With Gulshan Devaiah Earlier In Hate Story

What makes this more interesting that Gulshan Devaiah plays senior cop in Dahaad and he was one of ten leading men in Vivek Agnihotri’s erotica Hate Story. This was Agnihotri’s first commercial hit after numerous duds like Chocolate and Dan Dana Dan Goal.

About Dahaad:

This series is produced by Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment and Zoya Akhtar’s Tiger Baby Productions. They have made series like Mirzapur, Made In Heaven in past.

Dahaad is a Hindi-language crime, mystery, and thriller web series created by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar. The series stars Sonakshi Sinha, Vijay Varma, Gulshan Devaiah, and Sohum Shah. The story and screenplay written by Kagti, Akhtar, and Ritesh Shah are engaging and will keep viewers hooked. The series is set in a small, sleepy town in Rajasthan, western India, and follows sub-inspector Anjali Bhaati (Sinha) and her colleagues at the local police station. When a series of women are mysteriously found dead, Bhaati is tasked with the investigation.

The series has received mixed reviews. While some critics have praised the show’s controlled and superbly orchestrated storyline, others have criticized it for being repetitive and bland. The decision to make it a slow burn might act as a backfire as well where this doesn’t necessarily become palatable for everyone. However, the performances of Sonakshi Sinha and Gulshan Devaiah have been praised by many.

Dahaad is an eight-part crime drama that premiered on Prime Video. The first two episodes of Dahaad premiered at this year’s Berlinale Series, a key component of the Berlin Film Festival, marking India’s debut on the platform. It was Sinha’s first time at a film festival and she describes the experience as “phenomenal.” There were initial worries as the episodes were not getting the desired response, but the show has now gained notice for good Indian content. As for a second season, it is yet to be announced.

About Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo:

Created by the talented Homi Adajania along with his trio of writers, Saurav Dey, Nandini Gupta, and Aman Manan, the series has earned critical acclaim for its fresh take on the age-old struggle between contrasting female protagonists. The first season showcased the tension and conflict that arises within a family unit, exploring themes of tradition, societal expectations, and personal ambitions.
