A few lucky Bollywood celebs got the chance to see Pink starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu before its release on September 16.
The stars present were Kangana Ranaut, Preity Zinta, Dia Mirza, Yami Gautam and Kriti Sanon, among others, and most of them gave thumbs up to the film.
The theme of the thriller which is about about three girls — Taapsee Pannu, Andrea Tariang and Kirti Kulhari — and how their lives change after coming face-to-face with gender violence, has obviously touched a raw nerve.
Pink is a courtroom drama where the three girls and their lawyer (Amitabh Bachchan) are forced to face up to how Indian perceive their women.
An overwhelmed Kangana Ranaut actually left the screening before meeting the cast and sent a Whatsapp message to Pink actress Andrea Tariang. She wrote, “I wish I wasn’t so emotionally fragile and could say this in person but I loved your work – so honest and so natural. Congratulations and I feel this will be a big success, so be ready for it.”
Preity Zinta has already given Pink a five-star rating and wrote this on Twitter, “Preity Zinta Wow Just saw PINK ! The most RELEVANT film of this year. 5 Stars to all in this film & 500 Stars to @SrBachchan.”
These kind of superlative reactions are being shared by everyone who watched the film.
Yami Gautam called it a must watch and added, “#PINK .. Thank u @ShoojitSircar @SrBachchan #speechless.”
Kriti Sanon also said it can’t be missed, “So glad that films like #Pink r being made! Amazing performances, relevant content & so well paced. @ShoojitSircar @SrBachchan @taapsee 👏🏻👌🏻… Absolutely loved #Pink Real & super relevant!Questions the shameless mindset of our patriarchal society & hits the perfect note!a MUST WATCH.” – CINEWS
