I am not a big fan of Bollywood movies. Only few films that come rarely are realistic. Rest is a mixture of fantasy, make-believe, heroism, machoism, where the actress is just an eye candy to the He-MAN actor.
I want Bollywood to apologise. Apologise for the crap you’ve filled people’s head with for all these years. Apologise for the larger than life hero of your dull witted movies. Apologise for making people believe that one good guy could beat up ten guys and still come out unharmed.
Here one guy and a girl couldn’t beat up six guys. Welcome to reality.
For long you’ve sold your crap to the gullible people of India, and made super stars out of wanna be struggling actors.
For long you’ve shown that the good guy becomes the hero by saving a girl from getting raped. He is NOT doing the girl a favour. No sir! It is his moral obligation.
It was you, oh despicable Bollywood, who has played a major role in reducing women to a mere object of desire.
First a lover was sobriquetted as “Chaudvi ka chand”. Then came “cheez bari hai mast mast”.
Now it’s “Chammak challo”, “jumping-um, humping-um”, “munni badnaam” and “Sexy Sheila”.
All you are is a money minting Juggernaut. All of you. Lyricists, musicians, the women who agree to this objectification.
No. I am not an intolerant bigot. But every industry has a social responsibility. Where is yours?
Admit your part in this. And apologise. I don’t care how rich a superstar you are. I don’t care in how many exotic locations your have you bungalows. But you all are equally responsible. If not more. Apologise.
