“I’ve realized four years ago that a hero is not replaceable in a film but a heroine is. I got tagged as an iron-leg for the flops but not the hero. Since then I’ve decided to change my path” said Taapsee Pannu, at the recently concluded India Today conclave. Listening to her speech, some social media folks are coming up with interesting answers.
Trolls are always targeting Taapsee for targeting Tollywood in this way, but those feminists who are supporting her are seen making some interesting comments on social media. Especially one post is doing rounds where they are asking why mega hero Sai Dharam Tej is not called as an Iron Leg when it comes to the fate of heroines.
“From Rey to Jawan, there are many heroines including Sayami Kher, Shraddha Das, Regina Cassandra, Larissa Bonesi, who have not even got another big ticket film after working with Sai Dharam Tej. While Winner heroine Rakul has no Telugu films in hand now, Raashi Khanna is struggling post Supreme movie to become a big heroine. Same is the case with Mehreen Kaur, who lost her lucky-charm post Jawan. So, should Sai Dharam Tej not deserves to be called as an Iron Leg now? If heroines are Iron Legs, what about Heroes??” a post on Facebook read!!
Well, in the first case, a film will do well if the content is good, director does well, producer releases it with perfect planning and promotions. This has nothing to do with iron legs of heroines or heroes. All legs are made of flesh and blood only, but it’s the minds and heart that make the difference.
