Thank Kangana Ranaut for spearheading the debate on sexism and nepotism in the nation. Not someone to mince her words, Kangana, who is currently busy promoting her upcoming film Simran, shot for a video with a popular stand-up comedy team.
The song titled The Bollywood Diva Song is a reflection of the sexism that persists in our industry. From taking a dig at actresses' low pay cheques to the unapologetic objectification of women, the song braves to point out the problems in our industry and rightly so.
Among other barbs, The Bollywood Diva Song took a sly dig at Sony TV’s controversial show Pehredaar Piya Ki which was pulled off abruptly following several petitions.
Just recently, Pehredaar Piya Ki had kick-started a fresh debate on the regressive content sold on TV. Taking a dig at the show, Kangana is seen saying, “Yes, we have vagina re, piya Ka pehredaar banai na re.”
Pehredaar Piya Ki had run into several controversies after a 9-year-old was shown marrying an 18-year-old which had left many cringing. The makers are now shooting for another show with the same cast and are hoping to strike a right chord with the audience this time.
Talking about Simran, Kangana plays a Gujarati NRI who is a kleptomaniac in the movie which is being directed by Hansal Mehta. The movie releases on September 15, 2017.
Kangana is also busy shooting for her upcoming film Manikarnika which releases next year.
