The Phantom actor says it is unfair that the industry writes off actresses after they get hitched
Bollywood, despite calling itself progressive and liberal, has been not so kind towards married actresses in the past. Since the early days, marriage for top rung actresses meant putting a death knell to their career. Has the situation really changed over the years? Well, Chote Nawab Saif Ali Khan believes that we still have a long way to go. In a recent promotional event for his upcoming movie Phantom, he along with his leading lady Katrina Kaif, were bombarded with questions around marriage and domesticity.
While Saif was asked when he and his partner Kareena was planning to have a baby, Ranbir Kapoor’s bae was flooded with questions about her impending marriage with the Kapoor scion.
Branding these questions has hugely intrusive he said, “It is an attitude problem. Why can't women be single, have fun and make big bucks? Why should they be dating someone and if they are, why can't the couple simply enjoy their courtship days without being constantly asked about engagement and marriage? Why should women don their aprons before they want to and then get written off as 'married actresses' by people?”.
