Alia bhatt on facing casual sexism In the Industry
Over the years, many actors have opened up about facing casual sexism in the film industry. Having said that, Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt said that she has faced casual sexism in the Hindi film industry, and in general. She noted she did not realise it at the moment it was happening.
Alia will be next seen in Darlings, a dark comedy in which she plays a woman taking revenge on her husband after suffering domestic abuse. In a recent interview, Alia spoke about how women are taught to tolerate the bad things in society.
Alia quoted ,”I think from time to time I have faced casual sexism. Many times I would not notice it. When I think back now because I am so much more aware of it, it just makes so much sense as ‘oh my god that was such a sexist comment, or that I was basically a subject of extreme misogyny in that moment. That’s why now I am so much more sensitive. Sometimes my friends go like ‘what’s wrong with you, why have you become so aggressive?’
Darlings, which also stars Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma, is scheduled to release on Netflix on August 5.
