Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone – Meet B-town’s bindaas babes!

These actors have made us go WOW with their recent performances…Read on to know more…

She has been demure, submissive; bold, beautiful; sexy, flirtatious; and daring. She has also been holier-than-thou and sometimes, also a vamp — Bollywood, in it’s over 100 years of existence, has been a canvas of the several shades of a woman. But here’s a new colour — the Kangana Ranaut of “Queen” and the Alia Bhatt of ‘Highway‘ — free-spirited and living life on their terms, much like young contemporary Indian women today.

The attitude — vociferous, uninhibited, opinionated, free-willed and independent — is so easy to embrace and fall in love with. It’s almost as if the country’s umpteen women, subjugated by social conformity, men, family and environment, have found a part of themselves hidden in some corner of these characters who recognise their path, create it, follow it and then emerge with flying colours.

Take a dekko at Kangana’s Rani of “Queen” — she leads a simple, protected life like any other middle-class girl in Delhi’s Rajouri Garden, or largely, across India; dates a man who doesn’t let her dance her heart out even if she loves to, and isn’t comfortable with the idea of having a working woman as his wife. Rani adjusts — something that most ‘bharatiya naaris‘ would do. But she comes into her own when her fiance calls off the wedding, and she announces to her parents that she wouldn’t grieve and would instead embark on her honeymoon to Paris and Amsterdam — alone. She survives, enjoys herself, and finds out how there is more to life than having to settle down with a man who doesn’t care about your dreams and desires.

Ditto with “Highway“. But unlike Kangana’s Rani, Alia‘s character Veera is rich and well-travelled. Yet, she feels something amiss and a ride on a highway brings joy to her life. Her fiance, scared, tries to curb her desire, but here’s Bollywood’s new ‘I’ll do what I want’ and ‘I’ll make you do what I want’ type of heroine, who chooses to follow her dreams. When she gets kidnapped, what follows is a journey of self-realisation for Veera, who happens to understand that ‘travelling’ is not about going up and down in the lift of a hotel, that life is not about glittering social gatherings and she soaks in the joys of being in touch with nature and reality.

Examples of “free-spirited” women in Bollywood cinema may still be few and intermittent, but the trend is here to stay.

Katrina Kaif of “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara“, Deepika Padukone of “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” and “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, Sonam Kapoor of “Raanjhanaa“, Parineeti Chopra of “Shuddh Desi Romance” and “Hasee Toh Phasee“, Sridevi of “English Vinglish” and the girls in “Chak De! India” — they all reflect the new age women who know what they want from life.

Deepika’s YJHD character gave voice to the desire of a young college-goer to move out of the comfort of her house and chuck her fat books to explore life and see how her personality improves when she steps out of her mental stereotypes. Sridevi’s comeback role as a middle-aged housewife in “English Vinglish” proved that once a woman decides to do something, she does it successfully and age poses no bar.

Even Katrina’s ZNMD character believes in seizing the moment and making the most of life instead of running after the conventional. Parineeti, as the slightly eccentric character in “Hasee Toh Phasee”, does what she wants — irrespective of whether or not it fits into her family’s traditional scheme of things. These women expressed the grit, determination and indomitable will to live life their way. It’s a joy watching such pleasing and honest portrayals of women on screen. These characters show that if let loose, women can move so much beyond society’s ‘acceptable’ limits.

In the real world, women are gradually reaping the benefits of making their own choices — be it about career, marriage, relationships, family or vocation. So do us a favour dear people around us — let your daughter, sister, wife and mother have a life of their own. Let them loose!Subscribe to me on YouTube
