Sanjay Gupta supports Aishwarya by terming the open letter as ‘dumb’

When his film’s lead actress got caught in a web of racial controversy, director Sanjay Gupta couldn’t help but pour in his support for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But the director went ahead and termed people who write such open letters as ‘dumb’.

A lot has been said about the new advert of Aishwarya for a leading jewellery brand that is now clutched in racial controversy. In an open letter to the actress and the Brand it was pointed out, how they were depicting child servitude and how it was racially discriminating between her fair-toned skin and the child’s dark color.

Not only did Aish’s publicist respond to the open letter and posted the original picture, Jazbaa’s director also tweeted in Aish’s favor. Sanjay wrote, “Here is the pic taken. What is done with it in POST is not in the artist/model’s hand.” He even added, “Get a life guys. Sure you have more to do than write these dumb open letters. https://twitter.com/archanasadanand/status/590845997984677888 …”

While he supporting Mrs. Bachchan is a good sign, we aren’t so sure about him calling the open letter ‘dumb’. The letter is good and needed, as it is important to stop such regressive actions in this day and age.
