Portraying the way people of Bihar live in their upcoming movie Udta Punjab, Actress Neetu Chandra has written an open letter to director Abhishek Chaubey and actress Alia Bhatt. Alia plays a Bihari migrant in “Udta Punjab”, which tackles the drug disaster in Punjab.
In the letter, she wrote that – “It’s disturbing to see the way Biharis have been portrayed in Hindi cinema over the last few years, the recent example being Alia Bhatt’s character from ‘Udta Punjab’ and from whatever one understands from the promo of the film, director Abhishek Chaubey is guilty of strengthening the stereotype of Biharis by creating Bhatt’s character the way it is, in ‘Udta Punjab’.” Adding some more words to the letter, she quoted that –“Bihar was always exaggerated to be the most dangerous place to visit as his films showed only either kidnapping and robbery and murders not realising that he himself along with leading Bollywood actors (part of his films) are hurting the name of Bihar whose history has been the most richest in the world.”
What actually has been reflected through her letter and the sort of message she wants to deliver is She has urged people to stop stereotyping Bihar because we all have seen Bihar through your ears not through your eyes”
