Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh is grabbing the eyeballs for one reason or the other. The film recently came into limelight when veteran actor Neena Gupta took a jive at casting younger actors for such roles. But its all hale and hearty for the team now as they got a green flag from India’s Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu.

Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar hosted a special screening of their upcoming film for Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu. Naidu absolutely loved the film and the lead actresses were overwhelmed when he appreciated their efforts. The Vice President said that Taapsee and Bhumi have depicted the characters of India’s oldest sharpshooters, Prakashi Tomar and Chandro Tomar very well.

The Vice President on Saturday met the actresses and watched the flashes of their film. Naidu showered love on the movie with a series of tweet. He wrote, “Conveyed my best wishes to the entire team of ‘Saand Ki Aankh‘. “The movie realistically depicted the manner in which the two sharp-shooters overcame all odds and became symbols of women empowerment.” Along with the tweet, Naidu also shared a few pictures from the screening. He can be seen posing with the film’s cast and the real-life sharpshooters Prakashi and Chandro in the viral pictures.
