Kanika Dhillon slams Navjot Gulati for his 'sexist' remarks, Taapsee Pannu lends support
New Delhi [India], June 15, 2021 (ANI): Author-screenwriter Kanika Dhillon slammed screenwriter Navjot Gulati for comments that didn't go down well with her. Kanika called out Navjot for remarks she perceived as 'sexist' and 'misogynist' and found support in actor Taapsee Pannu.
Navjot, known for writing 'Jai Mummy Di' and 'Ginny Weds Sunny', took a jibe at Kanika over the writing credits she received for the upcoming film 'Haseen Dillruba' which stars Taapsee in the lead.
The trailer of the movie recently dropped, and Kanika had received prominent credits as the writer of the project.
Navjot wrote in a recent tweet that the key to scoring a 'top billing as screenwriter' is to 'marry into the production house'. Kanika, calling out the writer, said that the comments reeked of sexism, and added that Navjot has a 'pea-sized brain'.
She tweeted, "Hi @Navjotalive, I am quite shocked by ur extremely SEXIST - MYSOGINIST and bordering on IDIOTIC comment Neither will I list down my body of work cos ur pea sized brain will not be able to process a successful woman making it on her own! U may hav a brain freeze! Have a good day."
She wrote in a subsequent tweet, "And mr @Navjotalive because of writers like YOU - who display their STUPIDITY on something tht should be Applauded as a welcome step by the writing fraternity- other very deserving writers do not get top Billing as is their right--- shame on u!"
