Thank You For Coming Producer Rhea Kapoor Calls Out Mysoginistic Comments On The Film

Both Rhea Kapoor & Ektaa R Kapoor have always made stand out choices when it comes to the kind of movies they make and the content they producer. With Thank You For Coming, they’ve made headlines once again. The movie has also managed to grab international attention courtesy its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival.


Today, Rhea Kapoor took to social media respond to criticism coming the film’s way and those attacking her and her colleagues involved in the film.

In a powerful message, Rhea went on to reveal that her women-centric films often face disparagement from influential figures, but despite the challenges, she remains grateful for the love that has come the film’s way.

She wrote, "I’ve never read trade websites nor have they ever informed the films I choose to make. However, it has come to my attention that one so-called ‘credible’ trade journalist has been posting dangerous hate speech against myself and my co-producers. Admitting that he hasn’t seen the film, he's angered by our message- Women's rejection of shame. Stating that these stories have no place in ‘Hindi cinema’, he openly spews misogynistic rhetoric and encourages violence against us. I was told to pay no attention to the ravings of an obviously unstable individual. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I learn that this person actually has some impact on the way our industry feels. How are we ok with this? Not just ok, we're subscribing to it.”

She added, “Inspite of men like him, I cannot emphasise enough how much it means to me to have this film out there, loved and watched. The intent of this film was clear from the very beginning. To reject shame, reject your past traumas and embrace yourself just as you are. I won’t walk this tightrope of what society is comfortable with me being anymore and for your sake, I hope you don’t either. Thank you for coming."

Ektaa has also spoken about the same and added how the film has covered the costs despite everything people have been saying.

In India, Thank You For Coming has already raked in Rs 5.22 crores net. The film features stellar performances from Bhumi Pednekar, Shehnaaz Gill, Dolly Singh, Kushaa Kapila, and Shibani Bedi.
