Bollywood actor Abhay Deol acted with Dhanush and Sonam Kapoor in the Hindi film 'Raanjhanaa', dubbed in Tamil as Ambikapathy. In the film, Dhanush is the hero who relentlessly pursues Sonam Kapoor. Despite her continuous rejection, he tries to win her heart, but she falls in love with the vibrant and charismatic Abhay Deol.

On the day of their wedding, Dhanush reveals the religious differences between Abhay Deol and Sonam resulting in the break of the wedding. Abhay dies succumbing to the injuries caused by Sonam's relatives.

Talking about the film after posting screenshots of an Instagram user Swadha Agarwal's observations, Abhay said, history will not look kindly at this film for its regressive message. Take a look at why he feels that way:

Such clear and valid insight from @oldschoolrebel9 regarding the film Raanjhana. History will not look kindly at this film for its regressive message. It’s been a theme in Bollywood for decades, where a boy can (and should), pursue a girl until she relents. Only in cinema does she do that willfully. In reality we have seen time and again that it leads to sexual violence of some sort. Glorifying it on screen only leads to blaming the victim, as @oldschoolrebel9 explains it so brilliantly. Please do take time out to read her observations in the pics above. #shedoesnotlikeyou #growup #gloryfyingsexualharrasment
