Kiara Advani who managed to impress us with her performances in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Machine recently was a part of Netflix’s Lust Stories. The film which was an anthology of four stories was directed by Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee, and Karan Johar. Kiara featured in Karan’s version and which also starred Vicky Kaushal. The story about a married couple managed to grab eyeballs and the vibrator scene from the series was noteworthy. Recently in an interview with DNA, Kiara said that while she was approached for the scene, she didn’t have any reservations.

Kiara said,

I did it because I had no reservations or inhibitions. I never thought what the repercussions could be. That’s why my performance in that scene wasn’t hampered in any way. I didn’t overthink about whether people would be ready for it. Now that it has been accepted, I feel that’s a good thing. Of course, there are other actresses who have also done this and I’m happy it started a conversation.

Talking about the scene which addresses the topic of female masturbation, Kiara added,

At the end of the day, films mirror our society. It will take time for everybody to open up to this and accept it. They are not instantly going to sit up and change the way they think about it. The whole thing will take its own course and that’s fair enough. A film is made to entertain and this one had an issue which was lying beneath the surface.

She also had a very important question to ask,

It’s great that we have commercial filmmakers, who make family films and understand the aesthetics well, taking this route. They know how to bring the emotions out there without being vulgar. After all, it’s a natural instinct. Why can’t a woman do this and demand an equal part in the relationship?

We hope that more filmmakers take a note of this and start making films that start conversations.

Kudos to you, Kiara!
