Ranbir Kapoor made a comeback after four long years with Shamshera that also features Sanjay Dutt. The film is already termed as the box office flop as it couldn’t live upto the expectations.
In the midst of this all, the movie is getting slammed online for using Vaani Kapoor as a prop in the movie. Vaani Kapoor had however promised her fans and moviegoers before the film’s debut that her part was more than just a prop in the film.
“I have tremendous respect for Karan. I loved his movie Agneepath. I understand his sensibilities and aesthetics and I admire those. When he offered me the film, I saw the kind of arc he had for my character. She is not just there to be used as a prop in the film. It’s very little disclosed in the trailer but once the film comes out, the audience will see a very different look and dimension to this character,” she told CNN News 18.
Twitter, however, feels that Bollywood has once again objectified an actress. Some even said that she was inappropriately sexualized in the film.

You decide to make a South movie but forgot the main part.. respect for the culture.
Less said about vaani Kapur's role the better', really really felt sorry for her.#Shamshera

Why would the failure of Shamshera (which I still believe is a good film, despite the box office col)… why would this fall on Vaani Kapoor? She is nonexistent in the film, which was the number one reason I was pissed about! Bollywood keeps sidelining all the main actresses!! 🤬

Can anybody please explain why was there a need to unnecessarily sexualise Vaani Kapoor’s role in Shamshera? 🤷🏻♀️
