Bhubaneswar: Popular comedian Papu Pom Pom aka Tatwa Prakash Satpathy, who is making a comeback in Odia films, is again surrounded with controversies following a new poster release of his upcoming movie ‘Mr Kanheya’.
Sparking resentment among netizens, the poster faced strong criticism from all spectres of the society.
According to sources, the film’s poster is said to have unwittingly showcased how sexist the movie is. The poster shows Papu controlling a bunch of young women by holding a leash to the ropes tied around the necks of women.
However, the lead actor, Papu and producers are yet to comment on the matter, sources said.
Meanwhile, ace Odia sprinter Dutee Chand also opposed the poster by calling out the makers and Papu on social media platforms.
The actor will be seen in a new avatar in the upcoming movie ‘Mr Kanheya’ opposite actress Jhilik Bhattacharya. The movie is being produced by Sitaram Agrawal and Namita Agrawal.
Baidyanath Dash has given the music for the project. Directed by Ramesh Rout, the flick is likely to be released on Ganesh Puja this year.
