Tamannaah Bhatia, known for her diverse roles in the film industry, recently found herself at the center of controversy after a particularly intimate scene in the movie ‘Jee Karda’ garnered criticism from some netizens. Unfairly drawing comparisons to Sunny Leone, these detractors unleashed a wave of backlash against Bhatia.

The Context

Tamannaah Bhatia is an accomplished actress with a wide-ranging filmography that spans various genres. She has built a reputation for taking up challenging roles and delivering compelling performances. However, with the release of ‘Jee Karda,’ her latest film, a certain segment of netizens took offense to an intimate scene featuring Bhatia.

Unfair Comparisons

Netizens were quick to draw parallels between Tamannaah Bhatia’s portrayal and that of Sunny Leone, a former adult film actress who successfully transitioned to the mainstream Bollywood cinema. These comparisons have now turned into trolling, “ye kya nyi sunny leone ban gyi hai,” wrote one user, “what is wrong with her choices, she used to do such good roles,” mentioned another user. “Tamannaah is also following other Bollywood actresses’ footsteps,” wrote another user.

Meanwhile, in an interview, Tamannaah talked about her stepping out of her comfort zone. she said she has now broken her ‘no kissing’ policy on screen. The actress also added that she felt it quite easy and there was no big deal about it and she wondered why she didn’t do it earlier. The backlash faced by Tamannaah Bhatia exposes the prevalent double standards within the film industry and society as a whole. It is disheartening to witness how male actors are often exempt from such scrutiny and are seldom judged for similar scenes or performances.
