As soon as ‘Mallika Sherawat’ entered Bollywood, she was criticized for his ‘bold scenes’. The actress had to face brutal scrutiny while her male co-stars got away with it all. In the latest interview, Mallika said that being targetted for such scenes and how society and times have changed.
She Says Women Are Blamed For Everything
Recently, Mallika Sherawat talked about being tagged as a fallen woman for doing bold scenes in the 2004 film ‘Murder’. In an interview, Mallika Sherawat talked about the difference between how society treats a female and a male actor for ‘bold scenes’. The actress feels that women are targeted while men get away with everything very easily.
Mallika Sherawat told Bollywood Life, “That’s what the patriarchal system is. It’s always the women who are always targeted, not the men. Not only in India, but that’s all over the world. Men walk away with everything, they can get away with everything, it’s like they (those who target) blame the woman for everything. I don’t know why, but more so in India, I feel. I also think the society wasn’t evolved, people would think differently. Plus, the media didn’t support such scenes earlier, a certain section of the media.”
She also said that in her initial career, she was policed for his movie choices and things were difficult for her. She added to her words that but now the media are very supportive towards women and even the society has evolved now. Actresses are going for frontal nudity and also it is accepted, it is considered very artistic.
