Fans of the web series The Fame Game have responded to a scene in which actress Anamika Anand, the character of Madhuri Dixit, shows her age difference and mocks the young actor who asked her for blessings. In that scene, actor Jasleen, played by Pooja Bamra, welcomed Madhuri at an event where she praised him. He told me how he was a huge fan of Anamika and grew up watching her films. After that, he took Madhuri’s hand and placed it on her head to bless her, amidst the suffocation of the paparazzi standing outside.
