How often do you see a sarvagunn sampann hero in a Bollywood film giving up his world to be with the woman of his dreams? Or how about spotting a female breaking into a sizzling dance on some steamy song in the middle of nowhere in real life? The chances are as bleak as Taimur Ali Khan not making headlines for his cuteness! Thus, as we celebrate International Women’s Day, we thought of putting together a list of movies that were held to glory by strong women characters.
Not challenging the filmmakers or filmmaking, but let’s get one thing straight – when it comes to depicting feminism, many have missed the mark. It is rare to find films that reflect upon the reality of society, especially the one that concerns females. In times when there has been enough said to pin down the definition of feminism, Veere Di Wedding shines as a glorious example. Breaking the stereotype of a typical woman role, Rhea Kapoor showed her Veeres Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhasker and Shikha Talsania as these women of substance. In the not-a-chick-flick, these four stars have varied shades, different taste in men, contrary views on love and marriage but woven by the very element of friendship.
Veere Di Wedding is now streaming on ZEE5, tune in now.
