Bollywood star Anushka Sharma has given us many undertones of women to cherish through her stellar roles in the movies. Through his characters in Sultan, Band Baaja Baaraat, NH10, Phillauri, Jab Tak hai Jaan, Ae Dil hai Mushkil, Sui Dhaaga among many others, Anushka described that women can be confident, empowered, ambitious and free-spirited to make their own life decisions. With her productions, too, Anushka has given audiences a new brand of women who have lived their lives their own way. On Women’s Day, Anushka explains how she made the conscious decision to change the portrayal of women on screen as an artist and as a producer.
Anushka says, “Our films have the power to impact change and if done right films can also condition people to make them decide between what is right and what is wrong. By being clear about how we are going to portray women in movies, we can change people’s minds about how they perceive women and shatter age-old and regressive beliefs, customs and traditions.
She adds: “I think I was aware enough to select roles and films that I think could help change the portrayal of women on screen. It took a lot of self-confidence to do that as an actor and then as a producer because I was sort of swimming against the grain and questioning the way women have been portrayed so far. on the screen.
For Anushka, this decision freed her as a performer and producer as she decided to focus on changing the audience’s mindset towards the way they see women on screen.
Anushka says, “It was liberating for me to get up and do this for myself. I was done seeing myself as an accessory and I swore that as a producer I also wouldn’t allow a woman to be portrayed regressively. Thus, my choice of films and then my productions testify to the fact that I am committed to igniting a conversation in society about equality, self-respect and empowerment.
