Let’s not speak in regards to the exceptions which don’t get categorised on this train of prejudice and let’s make it clear that we’re not advocating any pores and skin present. We’re solely asking: Should not what is correct for Peter be proper for Paul too? Let’s debate.
First up, TV producer and ‘Bigg Boss 13’ and ‘Bigg Boss 14’ contestant Vikas Gupta affords, “Bollywood actresses venture themselves simply as they’re, they do not faux. They’ve a bonus, after all, as a result of they continue to be within the character solely till the movie is over, which regularly occurs in 6-12 months; in actual fact, you will discover them elaborating on their slate of forthcoming movies within the press interviews of their movie which is about to launch. However TV actresses need to dwell their respective characters for years and years. Now what they do, which they need to somewhat keep away from, is that they don their serial avatar even once they go for occasions and appearances. So individuals get so used to seeing them in a set specific manner, which is simply how they exactly look of their respective exhibits, and can’t disconnect that from their thoughts once they shed their inhibitions. To be sincere, many TV actresses additionally need to maintain on to their recognition. Now then, in such a case, they must be able to pay a value for that!”
Provides Gupta, “Let me clarify the opposite side to this. Folks do not thoughts Shefali Jariwala in glamorous attires as they nonetheless have her ‘Kaanta laga’ picture in thoughts. With regards to Nia Sharma, they know she is one woman who’s extraordinarily certain of what she is going to put on and seem like. Rupali Ganguli’s ‘Anupamaa’ is at present topping the TRP charts however she is one one who won’t ever put on a swimming costume and put it out within the public area. What I am saying right here is that the persona and the next of an actor resolve the trolls’ targets.” Is that why Aamna Sharif, who lately put out her image clad in a bikini, did not get trolled? “Completely, Aamna’s fan-following is within the 30-35 age group, who began seeing TV throughout the days of ‘Kahiin Toh Hoga’ (2003); such followers are very tech-savvy and progressive.”
Including to Vikas’s viewpoint, Devoleena Bhattacharjee says, “The individuals round us who don’t perceive that TV actresses are solely enjoying a job are nothing however silly.”
Juhi Parmar, whose efficiency in ‘KumKum- Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan’ was merely unforgettable, nevertheless, thinks barely otherwise. “I don’t suppose it’s about whether or not the artiste in query is a film actress or a TV actress- however somewhat the pores and skin present, which is a taboo in our nation. Nevertheless, I really feel ladies ought to put on what they need relying on how snug they really feel in what they’re sporting, with out being judged. A girl ought to have the fitting to decide on and resolve for herself, not nearly what she desires to put on however about the whole lot altogether, in any other case, she stays within the jail of societal ideas.”
Koena Mitra, who has finished TV and films each, says, “You might be proper along with your query. However look, right here we take into account solely Bollywood and cricket as giants. Do you see our TV actors getting large model adverts? No, you do not. In the event you do, it is only a uncommon taking place. I believe I’ve answered your query.”
Bollywood’s Nidhhi Agerwal, who starred with Tiger Shroff in ‘Munna Michael’ agrees that the scales are tilted in favour of movie gals in relation to them being judged by their photos on social media. Nidhhi, who herself places out very glamorous photos on her Instagram deal with, has a bit of recommendation for the TV gals. “I perceive the bias you’re speaking about. However I’d advise that no one ought to take social media critically and get emotionally hooked up to it like we are inclined to do. Have a look at how TikTok acquired banned. What if Instagram would not exist anymore within the close to future? On the opposite facet, let’s not get sentimental in regards to the unfavorable feedback, whether or not one is a TV actor or not. I believe a few of them take the double requirements very critically and therefore such debates come up.”
‘Bigg Boss 14’ participant Abhinav Shukla, husband of Rubina Dilaik who gained the identical season and was brutally trolled when she acquired right into a swimsuit in April 2020, appears to have made peace with it. With out lashing out, he merely says, “At this time, TV and film actresses work in each mediums. So the excellence is just not actually related. Furthermore, sporting a bikini is a private alternative, our structure grants that proper to us. You see, biased behaviour, lambasting, and bullying is the brand new regular. Guess, we have now to be taught to dwell with it.”
One other ray of hope is lighted by Chetan Hansraj, who says that he would not suppose that the day is much off when film stars and TV stars will probably be weighed on the identical scale as movie stars have began coming into the TV scene thick and quick. “TV business is greater than Bollywood. All film stars are competing with us to be on TV, I can solely want them the most effective of luck and welcome them to the TRPs sport.”
Treatment? Mohit Malik appears to have given up. “It is the case of conditioned minds that are very exhausting. Robust to interrupt them,” he says.
However a number one producer, whose biggie is slated for November this yr (identify withheld on request), says, “You will have rightly seen the bias. It does exist. However I have to say that it would not occur a lot these days. Folks like to see glam photos of Jennifer Winget, Krystle D’souza, Mouni Roy, and Karishma Tanna; occasions are altering.” Mahhi Vij and Aashka Goradia appear to be on the identical web page because the producer. Mahhi says that not less than she would not give attention to whether or not the actress whose image she’s preferred belongs to the large or small display. “In my opinion, actresses from each the mediums in query are horny.” And, Aashka appears to be the odd one out. “I’m from TV and have not skilled this. Most of my photos have solely obtained appreciation. I’ve not often needed to delete a remark or block anybody,” she shrugs.
However it’s Taapsee Pannu’s remark that takes the cake. Pannu quips, “So far as my statement goes, I’ve seen ladies, on the whole, being abused once they put out their photos in a bikini however the identical would not occur to males once they put out their half-naked photos from the fitness center or seaside.”
