Yami Gautam Gave A Mouth-Shutting Reply To Anupama Chopra’s Platform For Its Review Of “Dasvi”


The Indian cinema is recovering in a great manner after facing wrath of the COVID-19 pandemic for almost two years and now the moviemakers have also shed their inhibitions of releasing films on digital platforms instead of cinema halls. Recently Abhishek Bachchan, Nimrat Kaur and Yami Gautam starrer “Dasvi” got released on OTT channel and it got mixed reviews from audiences and critics alike.

However, Yami Gautam got angry with the manner in which Anupama Chopra’s Film Companion reviewed the movie and the performances of the actors, especially of Yami. The “Kaabil” actress took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and slammed the entertainment portal in a series of tweet.

She writes that though she takes criticism in a constructive manner, it becomes necessary to speak when a portal tries to pull you down consistently. She also posts a screenshot from the review that is about her performance and which she finds really disrespectful especially when her recent movies include “A Thursday”, “Uri: The Surgical Strike” and “Bala”. Yami also speaks about how it hurts when it takes many years of hard work and determination especially for a self-made actor to prove his/her caliber and some big portals try to demean the actor.

Check out the tweets by Yami Gautam:

Yami also states that there was a time when she looked up to Film Companion but she doesn’t feel the need to do it anymore and she also requests the portal not to review her performances in the future.

Soon netizens also started reacting and majority was in support of the actress, however Film Companion also responded to Yami Gautam by tweeting, “Dear Yami. We are sorry you feel that way. Please be assured, that there was no disrespect meant. Thank you.”

While some online users feel that Film Companion is always against the self-made actors as they support the products of nepotism, there are many who strongly believe that this all has happened because Yami has not only praised Vivek Agnihotri’s “The Kashmir Files” but also asked people to watch it.

The filmmaker Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri also made no delay in lending support to Yami Gautam as he tweeted, “Bravo, @yamigautam for speaking up. You need no certificates for your talent from this vicious mafia led by @anupamachopra”.

Well, critics may play an important role in making an actor understand what he is missing from his work but being rude is certainly not justified.
