Abhay Deol is one of the actors of Bollywood, who has been vocal about his opinions unapologetically. The versatile actor today slammed one of his own films Raanjhanaa, which marked the Bollywood debut of Dhanush and featured Sonam Kapoor in a prominent role. The actor said that the History will not look at the film kindly for its regressive message. Pointing the obersvation of a blogger on social media, Abhay wrote, "Such clear and valid insight from @oldschoolrebel9 regarding the film Raanjhana. History will not look kindly at this film for its regressive message. It’s been a theme in Bollywood for decades, where a boy can (and should), pursue a girl until she relents. Only in cinema does she do that willfully. In reality we have seen time and again that it leads to sexual violence of some sort. Glorifying it on screen only leads to blaming the victim, as @oldschoolrebel9 explains it so brilliantly. Please do take time out to read her observations in the pics above. #shedoesnotlikeyou #growup #gloryfyingsexualharrasment."
Raanjhanaa, which was directed by Aanand L Rai, also featured Swara Bhasker, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Kumud Mishra in pivotal roles. While Dhanush bagged Filmfare Best debut award, AR Rahman's compositions became instant hit, especially song like Tum Tak, Raanjhanna Hua Mein Tera, Aye Sakhi Saajan.
