What A thought Priyanka? Check out PC’s Thoughts On The Gender Bias In Bollywood
After rocking the Hollywood your favourite PC AKA Priyanka Chopra is back to Mumbai. Now days, She is busy in promoting her upcoming english movie Bawatch. As Priyanka mentioned in one of her statement the team of Baywatch will not come to India for film promotions. Team apparently will take turns promoting the movie at various locations. The actress is in India for 10 days and has been spreading the word about her movie.
Yesterday, Priyanka attended a press conference to promote Baywatch. She was was asked about her thoughts on the gender bias in both Bollywood and Hollywood. She said – “We live in a male dominated world – be it India or America. Even over there, people are fighing for equality. The world in general has told women that we are second class citizens. So now, even in films, male stars are given that sort of reverance. With female actors also, we should change our point of view. We have already had a 100 crore woman oriented film – Kangana’s film, right?”
She also added next – ” It’s a big fight. Before, such movies did not even get a good opening. But see Mary Kom – it had one of the biggest openings. So it is a good time for actresses. Hopefully, in a few years, our movies will also make 200 or 300 crores. But the mentality of the audience has to change. That is more important. People should want to come and watch good films and not judge if it is a girl or a guy. However, fan followings are a boon. Like my fans will always come to watch my film. And you know India’s population! So its fine. As women, we are making changes and as an audience they are making changes. It is the same with Hollywood. The disparity – so many actresses have talked about it.”
Very well said PC !!! What you think about it? Leave a comment below.
