Ranjit Bawa expresses his anger on Janhvi Kapoor starrer ‘Good Luck Jerry’; asks if Bollywood will show Punjab only as a drug state

Pollywood actors like Diljit Dosanjh and more have time and again expressed how Bollywood stereotypes Punjabis in movies. They are shown only as a comic character of a farmer, but there’s more to Punjabis than what is brought on the screen. Drawing some attention to the stereotypes, recently Punjabi singer-actor Ranjit Bawa also expressed his anger over the portrayal of Punjab in Janhvi Kapoor’s ‘Good Luck Jerry’.

Released recently on a popular OTT platform, ‘Good Luck Jerry’ is a story of a Bihari girl living in Punjab who tries to make some quick money and therefore gets into the business of drug smuggling. The fact that the story is based in Punjab, and shows the drug abuse in the state didn’t go down well with Punjabi singer-actor Ranjit Bawa.

Taking to Twitter, Bawa has expressed his anger toward the movie. He wrote that in ‘Good Luck Jerry’ once again Punjab has been shown as a drug addict. He asked if Punjab will only be featured as a drug state. He even tagged the CM of Punjab in his tweet and used hashtags – #shame #target #state #Bollywood. Here’s what his tweet reads – “#Goodluckjeery movie vich Ek vaar fir Panjab nu Chiitta ( Nasha ) wala dikhaya gya 😡panjab Nu bus hun bollywood movies vich drug state hi dekhaoge ? #shame #target #state #bollywood @CMOPb #siddharthsen”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Ranjit Bawa was last seen in the movie ‘Khao Piyo Aish Karo’, and next he has ‘Parahuna 2’, ‘MIB: Kale Kacchian Wale’ and more in the pipeline.
