A show on OTT platform Netflix has suddenly become the subject of controversy. A very ugly comparison has been made between two veteran Bollywood actresses Aishwarya Rai and Madhuri Dixit. The comparison was made in such vulgar language that political analyst Mithun Vijay Kumar sent a legal notice to Netflix over the matter. Actress and politician Jaya Bachchan is now angry about this. He slammed ‘The Big Bang Theory’ actor Kunal Nair for the language he used for the two actresses. Not only Jaya, Bollywood actresses Urmila Matondkar and Dia Mirza also expressed their displeasure about this.
On Netflix’s show ‘The Big Bang Theory’, Madhuri Dixit has been called a ‘leprous prostitute’. Many celebrities including Jaya Bachchan, Urmila Matondkar and Dia Mirza reacted to the issue.
This is the case
There is a scene in the first episode of the second season of ‘The Big Bang Theory’, where Sheldon compares Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to Madhuri Dixit. He said, ‘Is this Aishwarya Rai Bachchan? I think she is the poor man’s Madhuri Dixit. Hearing this, Raj (Kunal Nair) gets angry and says, ‘How dare you say that. Aishwarya is a goddess. Compared to him, Madhuri is a ‘leprous prostitute’.
This is what Kunal Nair is crazy about: Jaya Bachchan
During a conversation with Times of India, Jaya Bachchan was very angry and said, ‘Is this Kunal Nair crazy? He has a very bad tongue. He needs to be sent to a mental asylum. His family should be asked what they think of his comments.
Urmila-Dia also expressed displeasure
Not only Jaya Bachchan but also actresses Urmila Matondkar and Dia Mirza are very angry with Kunal Nair’s comments. Urmila Matondkar said, ‘I am not aware of the episode, so I should not comment, but if it is true, it is very humiliating. It shows small mindedness. This kind of comedy is not funny’. At the same time ‘Dia Mirza said it was insulting’.
