When talking about Bollywood, female characters are mostly stereotyped as dumb, mindless creatures with only sexual pleasure to offer. The most common example of such stereotype is the Love interest. The ‘heroine’ or the main actress is almost always portrayed as the love interest of male protagonist and don’t have a lot to do in the movie except please the hero with her beauty and romance plus some also say that this portrayal is entirely sexist. Another characteristic of this stereotype is virginity. the heroine’s virginity is considered as a huge deal and is required to respecting a woman.
Another characteristic of this stereotype is virginity. The heroine’s virginity is considered as a huge deal and is required to respecting a woman. The unchaste and bold women, who are appeared to be sexually dynamic, are usually characterized as negative characters, a degradation to women’s sexuality. however, this is being changed now as modern women now don’t want to be seen vulnerable who need a male protagonist to save them for problems.
One of my favourite Bollywood actress, who portrayed characters that changed how Bollywood heroines are seen by the audience. The former Miss World Priyanka Chopra could have been just another regular Bollywood actress, if not for her distinctive career choices. She has impressed the audience with her bold acting skills and blown our minds by portraying several surprising roles in movies Aitraaz, Mary Kom, 7 Khoon Maaf, Barfi and etc. Also, her latest foray into American TV screen as Alex Parrish in ABC’s new TV show Quantico took everyone by surprise. Quantico didn’t only impress Indian audience but has attracted global audiences as well. As “Alex Parrish” Priyanka has broken the stereotypical image of Bollywood women with sensuous, bold scenes.
In one of the interviews, Priyanka said
“I was very sure I did not want to be the stereotype of what Indian people are seen as, which is Bollywood, and henna,” the Quantico star and Baywatch villain told Complex. “That’s all great! It’s what we are, and I love it. I love saris, I love music, I love henna, I love dancing, but that’s not all we are.”
