AIB knocks out Bollywood's Harassment through the ages
AIB presents video which �takes an honest look at How Bollywood has enabled harassment over the years�, and featured popular actors Richa Chadha and Vicky Kaushal.
In a bid to provide a detailed satrical view of Bollywood, comedy outfit All India Bakchod (AIB) has now come up with "Harassment through the years" based on Bollywood's female objectification through generations. A week after bringing honest view on Demonetisation, AIB has surely taken up the notch with this video.
In an attempt to open up discussion on sexual harassment and objectification of women in Indian cinema (or any cinema, for that matter), AIB presents video which “takes an honest look at How Bollywood has enabled harassment over the years”, and featured popular actors Richa Chadha and Vicky Kaushal.
The video starts with the January 2015 incident in Australia, when an Indian man was taken to court because he had stalked and harassed two women. The 32-year-old was obsessed with Bollywood and thought if he would doggedly pursue the women, then they’d eventually fall in love with him. As ridiculous as this argument presented by Sandesh Baliga’s lawyer may sound, the local magistrate actually said it would not record a conviction owing to his cultural background – thus validating that sexual harassment of women by a Bollywood-obsessed Indian was “quite normal behaviour” and commensurate with his “cultural background."
The video looks back to decades old songs from 1960s, through the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s and comes to present day item songs, presenting the fact the even the lyrics of these songs have got more brazen and direct.
In AIB’s characteristic style, the songs’ lyrics have been reworked to reflect all that’s wrong with it. All through this, Mallika Dua acts the voice of reason, but just like reason in reality, she is also unheard.
