‘From A Younger Age, Women Are Playing Mother Roles To A Hero Who Is Older Than Them’ — Anurag Kashyap

Avya Sharma

The very bold Anurag Kashyap never shies away from speaking his mind. And this time around, we heard him loud and clear! In a candid conversation Kareena Kapoor Khan, the host of the radio show What Women Want, the ace filmmaker spoke about how the mindsets and perspectives of people change once an actress becomes a mother.

Speaking about how women are not offered much choice after marriage and children, he said that they are most often cast for roles as mothers to a hero much older than them. While this is slowly changing for the better in today’s time, Anurag further said that there needs to be a change in collective perception. He states that people should be comfortable playing their age and being themselves.

In the episode, Anurag was accompanied by his AK Vs AK co-star Anil Kapoor and the trio extensively spoke about how the work culture for women in Bollywood is changing. From equal salaries to women being at the forefront, they spoke about it all!

For the unversed Anurag Kashyap was recently seen in Netflix film AK vs AK alongside Anil Kapoor. The format of the film was all things unusual for Bollywood. Helmed by Vikramaditya Motwane, the actor and filmmaker played themselves in the film and it was one revetting and super interesting watch!
