Taapsee Pannu Speaks About Misogyny In Films

Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu spoke about the existing misogyny in films by saying that she was replaced in a film because the hero's wife did not like her. 

She also faced rejections over claims like she was not pretty enough. She was asked to compromise on her salary because her hero's previous films did not work and want to pay him accordingly. 

Taapsee had always been vocal about sexism and misogyny in Bollywood. 

She made a niche for herself with successful films like 'Thappad', 'Badla,' 'Naam Shabana.' etc.

She will be seen in 'Rashmi Rocket.'

Tripti Dimri On 'Bulbbul' And What Success Brought Her

Actress Tripti Dimri saw a meteoric rise in stardom with her lead role in Netflix film 'Bulbbul' where she played the lead role of a vengeful woman against abusive men. 

She said that the film itself addresses how society perceives successful and powerful women, as a threat. Men, on the other hand, are meant to be powerful by default. 

She is glad that powerful stories about women are being written and there is awareness in society.
