A complaint has been filed against Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma for allegedly making derogatory remarks against sex workers in their forthcoming film Sanju, reports news agency ANI. In one scene from the film, which was also included in the trailer, Anushka, who stars a biographer, asks Ranbir Kapoor, who plays Sanjay Dutt, about his former girlfriends and affairs he's had. In his response, he provided a round off figure - 350. ("308, without counting the sex workers," he says precisely). ANI reports that the complaint has been filed by activist Gaurav Gulati. "The complaints wants to draw your kind notice towards the outrageous and cheap dialogues being used in the upcoming movie, namely, Sanju by the Bollywood actors Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma," the letter stated, ANI reports.
"All the dialogues used in the trailer are not only outrageous and anti-women but also shows low mindset of the movie makers towards the women fraternity," it added.
