Girls Need To Eat Now, Bollywood Wants Healthy Actresses!

Bollywood Wants Healthy Actresses!

This must have made you totally confused as to which direction is Bollywood moving in, right?

Hollywood and the whole of western media show women skinnier than skinny and Bollywood wants women to look healthy (fat, for common man’s understanding!)?

How can this be?

What has brought such a change in our Hindi film industry which is most of the times so hypocritical about physical appearances?

First of all, let us tell you the reason for this story. This is based on the latest trailer of an upcoming movie of Ayushmann Khurana titled, Dum Laga Ke Haisha! Being produced by Yash Raj Films and directed by Maneesh Sharma (of Band Baaja Baarat fame) the interesting about the movie is that it is about a husband and wife in which husband is thin while the wife is heavy or rather fat.

Given this premise, as per the trailer, no one is planning to lose weight or gain weight, but letting love develop irrespective of the sizes!

Interesting, isn’t it?

Never before it has been attempted in Bollywood that over-weight has been celebrated, accepted and used to show that love can happen anytime, anywhere, between any two people and physical appearance isn’t that important. In this context, it is definitely a coming of age cinema, feeding into the changing sensibilities of society and contributing in its own sweet manner to the idea of love being above everything else.

However, the trend was started some time ago when Hindi film industry, notoriously known for its size zero actresses and promoting thinner than thin figures for girls, started writing and giving roles to girls who were on the heavier side in real life.

The best examples are Vidya Balan and Parineeti Chopra. Both are examples of girls who are terrific actresses and despite not having the so called perfect figure are getting roles in film after film purely on the acting talent!

In this movie, a new girl is making her debut.

Her name is Bhumi Pednekar and she is the one who took auditions for Parineeti Chopra’s debut movie! Bhumi has been working with Yash Raj Films for some time now and fits the role to the T! The trailer is impressive and looks like the movie is going to be fun without being preachy.

It is high time such themes and stories are explored in our industry, which are closer to reality, give a message and are still full of entertainment!

Kudos to Aditya Chopra for thinking out of the box and producing a film like this! Hopefully, the film will be as much fun as the trailer is!
