Outspoken Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut amid controversies of her previous ‘love-life’ has clubbed with an Indian comedy group, All India backchod, nationally famous as AIB to shoot at the patriarchy in Indian film industry especially Bollywood.
The viral video posted on Youtube 22 hours ago has grabbed 1,757,045 views ad 74k likes at the time of writing this.
The video features a male director who prefers to cajole the lead actor and sideline the actress which seems to be the routine in most film industries. The blast starts as Kangana who features the lead actress in the video complains to the director that her dialogues only praise the actor and has nothing to do with her though she plays the role of physicist.
But the director brushes off the actress’ suggestion and waits patiently for the arrival of the actor. And as the actor enters the frame in a ‘Khabhi Kushi Khabhi Gham style’, the Chittiya kalaiyaan originally jacqueline fernandez’s song comes up with revised the most hilarious lyrics, like ‘I am tired of kissing their asses, Baboons have broader minds than them’
The video apart from breaking the patriarchy also criticises how women are showcased in the limelight. ‘Only make me dance only in a chaddi’, ‘No one listens to me coz I have a vagina’, ‘my cleavage takes the front pages’, I have a vagina and I haven’t eaten carbs in months’
She slams how male actor’s paycheck has more zeroes than that of a lead actress. The video also slams male actors who play alongside very young female actresses which the video calls ‘it’s almost pedophilia’.
‘Coz I have a vagina, I have to keep my opinion behind the pallu of my sarree’. The culture of nepotism was also dug at while the lines of the video said, "Your dad launched you, when I say it, you taunt me, you play the victim."
As always no matter how much ever she will be criticised, Kangana seems to stand firm on her ground and opinion.
