The trailer of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Avneet Kaur's Tiku Weds Sheru was officially shared by the makers on Wednesday (June 14). The film introduces the never-seen-before Jodi of Nawazuddin and Avneet who are hustling to achieve their Bollywood dream.
The trailer shows the journey of two eccentric and starry-eyed characters - a dreamer Tiku (Avneet) and a hustler Sheru (Nawazuddin).
It also features a kissing scene involving Nawazuddin and Avneet, and it has not gone down well with a section of social media users.
Netizens slam makers of Tiku Weds Sheru
Soon after the trailer was launched, several users on the social media platform Reddit criticised the makers for casting Avneet opposite Nawazuddin. Some of them also said that they were surprised the scene was from a film backed by Kangana Ranaut, who often speaks about the representation of women in films.
"How can they pair them together? Avneet was literally a kid when this movie was shot dude :/ they have a 30 year age gap….imo age difference shouldn’t be normalised to this extent no matter the quality of the film," a user commented.
Another commented, "My god that was so uncomfortable to watch and they also have a kissing scene damn."
"What kind of joke is this. She looks like her daughter," another user wrote.
"Eewww. So uncomfortable to watch that," read a comment.
