Rashami Desai strongly criticizes Ranveer Singh’s new viral ad, saying, “I think it’s like a slap.”

The actress wrote, “Maybe I’m overreacting, but we share our culture and love with our audience.”

Bollywood star Ranveer Singh and adult film actor Johnny Sins recently appeared in an ad for a men’s health brand. The ad pokes fun at the dramatic style of Indian TV shows. Television actress Rashami Desai didn’t like the ad. In a long message, she said it felt like a “slap.” She started by talking about her journey from regional films to TV. She said TV isn’t small because many people watch news, cricket, and Bollywood movies on it.

Desai felt the ad insulted the TV industry and its people. She said actors on TV also want to work in movies but often feel belittled. She mentioned that such things usually happen in movies, not on TV shows. Desai expressed her hurt feelings because she’s had a respectful journey in TV. She hoped people would understand her emotions.
