WTF Wednesday Women have been compared to a lot of THINGS in Bollywood, but these 5 make us CRINGE the most
Bollywood, If I may, has been the advocate of so many things bad that I have honestly lost the count. Apart from the hero-worshiping scripts, large scale pay-gap and an undocumented unprofessionalism, the industry that churns out more movies than most is infamous for its sexist standards and how! And by how I mean with full-fledged item numbers that are loaded with insinuations that does women no good other than making them suitable for the male gaze (read objectification). But India hai, sab chalta hai!
And when I say chalta hai, I mean songs that will make you wonder–who must have penned them and under what influences! Sub-par songs that you mustn’t even have realised whilst dancing to it. That’s right, women since ages have been compared to things and called names you wouldn’t even think in your wildest dreams and If you think I’m making this up, well, it’s a good thing that I have come prepared. Out of all the sorts, and let’s just admit there are a lot, here are 5 things that make us cringe the most.
