ANUBHAV SINHA’S BHEED FACES CONTROVERSY OVER TRAILER
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha’s upcoming film Bheed has been the topic of controversy since the release of its teaser. The teaser highlights the plight of migrant workers during the Covid-induced lockdown of 2020 and draws parallels with the horrors of Partition. However, this has led to accusations of the film being “anti-India” and of attempting to sensationalise the crisis. The controversy has been further fuelled by the removal of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s voiceover from the trailer.
SINHA FOCUSES ON STORY OF BHEED RATHER
Despite the controversy, Anubhav Sinha prefers to focus on the story of his upcoming film Bheed. He believes that every film goes through various challenges and that these do not distract from the story. He cites his experience of changing the poem for Thappad as an example of how changes are a normal part of the filmmaking process.
TWITTER REACTIONS NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY SINHA
Anubhav Sinha does not take seriously the opinions of people on Twitter who have accused Bheed of being “anti-India” and of attempting to sensationalise the crisis. He believes that the internet has a lot of discussions, but that not all of them are valid. He notes that Twitter has many discussions, but that even intelligent people like Elon Musk can talk nonsense on the platform.
ANUBHAV SINHA: USED TO BEING LABELED “ANTI-NATIONAL”
Anubhav Sinha is no stranger to controversy. He has directed acclaimed socio-political dramas like Mulk and Article 15, which have led to accusations of him being “anti-national”. Sinha, however, claims that he loves India and that anyone who loves India more than he does deserves his respect. He believes that controversy is often a matter of perspective, and that what may appear negative to some may be positive to others.
BHEED’S STAR-STUDDED CAST
Bheed boasts a star-studded cast, including Rajkummar Rao, Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, Pankaj Kapur, Ashutosh Rana, Kritika Kamra and Kumud Mishra. The film is scheduled to release on March 24.
The controversy surrounding Anubhav Sinha’s Bheed highlights the challenges that filmmakers face when tackling socio-political issues. However, Sinha prefers to focus on the story of his film and believes that controversy is often a matter of perspective. With a talented cast and a powerful storyline, Bheed promises to be a thought-provoking film that will resonate with audiences.
