Bollywood actress Vaani Kapoor who was last seen in the recently released film War alongside Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff got embroiled in a new controversy

The actress, in a now-deleted picture on her social media account, was seen wearing a bikini top with the words ‘Hare Ram’ imprinted on it.

This picture of the actress did not go down well with several people. Many netizens took to Twitter to lash out at the actress. Some of them called her uncultured and told her to value the sentiments of the devotees.

“Wearing Lord Sri Raam’s name on the uncultured dress code doesn’t give value to the actress Vani Kapoor @Vaaniofficial. This is hurting the sentiments of devotees of Lord Sri Raam. We urge to removed such images from the site and value the devotees sentiments,” a user wrote.

Another user wrote, “#vaanikapoor you do not have any respect for our Hindu gods you should be sorry for this and shameless women, if you can’t respect Hindu god, at least don’t disrespect them. It is an idiotic ness.” 

“Insulting Hindu gods and practices has become a way to tell a specific section in Bollywood we are going to stoop to any lows to get work,” wrote a Twitter user. 

Vaani Kapoor is well known for her work in Bollywood films produced by Yash Raj Films. She made her film debut in the 2013 romantic comedy Shuddh Desi Romance, a critical and commercial success, which earned her Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She went on to star in the company's romantic comedies Aaha Kalyanam (2014) and Befikre (2016).

In 2019, she appeared in War an action-thriller film starring Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The film is directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films. War set the record for the highest-opening day collection for a Bollywood film in India, and with a worldwide gross of over Rs 450 crore, it became the highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2019. The film is her most successful film among all her films released so far.

Vaani Kapoor and her team haven’t reacted to this controversy yet but have deleted the said picture from social media.
