Director Anurag Kashyap's 'Manmarziyaan' starring Abhishek Bachchan and Tapsee stirred a controversy. In a scene, Abhishek Bachchan who played a Sikh steps out of Gurudwara after taking part in marriage rituals, removes turban and smokes a cigar. Sikhs complained this sequence hurt their religious sentiments.
Eros which bankrolled 'Manmarziyaan' deleted the scene to avoid any further trouble. Anurag Kashyap, however, was furious upon knowing that the scene removed without his knowledge.
Tapsee responded on the removal of controversial scene in a sarcastic manner: 'I am sure this edit will assure that no Sikh will ever Smoke and no woman will ever think about ANYONE else while getting married in a Gurudwara. THIS surely will make Waheguru proud and assures that MY religion is the purest, most righteous and peaceful'.
As the trolls kept targeting her, Tapsee shot back, 'My religion never taught me to censor someone's feelings. I don't know who gave these bunch of self proclaimed religion saviours the authority to decide what a woman can think and what not. Did u? And if not will u stay quiet when they tell u what to think n what not ! I won't!'
