Tisca Chopra has today joined actors and filmmakers such as Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood, Raveena Tandon, R Balki, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Imtiaz Ali, Nandita Das and many more, each taking a stand for the right of the man who they think is the most important.
On a podcast, Tisca chose to talk about the right to life from the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Tisca Chopra said: “In India, women’s rights are so severely violated, taking away from them not only the right to life, but to live with dignity. It’s not just that you exist, but it’s the quality of that existence. I think we need to approach this issue with education and I think the right to dignity should be taught to children in college or even college. It should be brought up frequently, brought up in parent-teacher meetings, once the pandemic is over, obviously, but these are things that should be discussed openly and widely.
Discussing her experience of the right to dignity in the film fraternity, Tisca said: “When I arrived in Bombay, I felt that the film industry was very misogynistic – women were second degree citizens seen through. the male gaze as objects. When I started writing and producing, the first film I made, chutney, was very rebellious because I felt that the earning power of an actress being sexually attractive was the only chip she dealt with. I chose, by rebellion, to make the protagonist of chutney almost ugly. She speaks badly. She has no education. She has no children to give her status in society. “
“The fact that it has become the world’s most watched short film with 132 million views has proven that what we’ve been telling people – that girls should be all about the body and the way they look – wins out. Dignity an artist. To say that there is nothing for you other than the fact that you might be the object of someone’s sexual interest is extremely degrading, “she added.
“One thing that’s wonderful, after the #MeToo movement, is that every production office you go to has the POSH guidelines laid out – Sexual Harassment Prevention, Bold and Clear. And that’s a huge relief to me, because the early days of the film industry was a despicable place for women to work, in every way. Physical dignity, personal dignity, harassment of all kinds. So these are areas where I feel the work that people like you (United for Human Rights) and the United Nations in the field of education have come such a long way, as they act as a massive deterrent and things are so much better on set now, ”she added.
“There is still a lot of work to be done in the areas of educating women as artists, as free voices speaking for themselves. And this is the area I want to work in, because I don’t believe in getting angry. I believe in getting better and having more power to be able to assert myself and say – these are the kinds of stories I want to tell. And to do it so well. so that you buy your freedom in creating the kind of work, which stands head and shoulders above the rest of the work, or at least at par. Then the genre ceases to be one. thing, ”she concludes.
