Actress Kangana Ranaut and many other B-town beauties attended the Cannes Film Festival 2018 but as well know controversies go hand in hand with celebs. This time it all happened at one of the events of the prestigious film festival which was attended by Jim Sarbh along with Kangana.
Reportedly, the video of the duo went viral on the social media in which they can be seen laughing a lot after cracking that controversial rape joke. Shockingly, after seeing a video, social media users started criticising the actors for uplifting such a sensitive issue as a joke.
This is not the first time such type of jokes has landed celebs in trouble as earlier superstar Salman Khan, during the promotions of Sultan, was landed in the controversy. Jim further explained his stance on rape, as he added, “I did not intend to hurt anybody, and I certainly do not consider actual sexual or physical violence funny.”
Unfortunately, Bollywood personalities continue to be idols that the youth of this country looks up to and follows. We depend on them to lead the conversation of change. It’s important that Jim and Kangana understand how isolating and silencing sexual violence is.
On the work front, Kangana has started the shooting of his upcoming film Mental Hai Kya alongside Rajkummar Rao. Jim, on the other hand, was last seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat.
