The Bollywood industry is famous for many things – the brilliant life of stars, their love affair, controversy and yes, breaking taboos! In particular, Bollywood actresses — they are breaking the paradigm not only with their acting skills, but by establishing themselves as role models for many of us.
There have been instances when he has actually acted as an eye opener for society! Like when Alia Bhatt was in a very non-traditional role where she was represented as a taxi driver in a recent advertisement for MakeMyTrip.
There are many other examples of leading women of B-town, who are not only female-centric, but also have roles that are ‘off-putting’.
These strong portrayals of actresses prove that a film can perform equally well with a strong female protagonist. There are many conservatives in the society, and somehow our Bollywood “heroines” are not taking these rules seriously.
In addition, today we have collected a list of such incidents where Bollywood actresses break taboos and emerge as our role models:
Pregnant model in ramp walk
Kareena Kapoor is one of the boldest and finest actresses in the Bollywood industry. Although she has always left her stunning acting and beautifully mesmerized audience, the actress went on to break social norms as she walked the ramp with her unborn child !!
It was the most “special” moment of her life as she walked the ramp for the first time since the announcement of her pregnancy.
The 34-year-old actress became emotional and said that it would be a trick for her to remember as she and her child stepped on the ramp together for the first time !! She decided to walk for her latest collection of designer Sabyasachi’s muse, which brought curtains at Lakme Fashion Week 2016.
Kareena looked gorgeous in a Sabyasachi outfit with her baby bump and was praised by the industry for not allowing pregnancy in the midst of her work.
Adult category as a career option
Girls often object to entering the film industry, where they have to reveal parts of their bodies and attract viewers. Nowadays, various women and girls break out of their shell to take the “adult industry” as a career option. An example of such an actress is Sunny Leone.
Although intimacy has now become an integral part of the film and is considered commonplace, the actresses working in such films do not get as much fame as other celebrities do.
But these bold actresses of Bollywood had not given such opinion and turned the audience down and chose the adult category as a career option.
Hence, girls like Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra entertained the audience in their own way by coming up with their app. These beauties are proud of their bodies and do not hesitate to come bare in front of the camera. It certainly breaks the custom chain that is so heavy in the name of decency.
It is quite common when a woman enters her 30s with the tag of being single, becoming a national concern for everyone around. Whether it is independent, successful, or happy single, it is not a concern for the surrounding conservatives.
Well, in a country full of TV and Bollywood stars, there are few Divas who are above 35 and are happily enjoying their ‘single’ status.
Each of them has proven and established itself in the industry. This list includes Tabu, Rekha, Sushmita Sen and many others. These leading women have a beautiful and aspirational career as a Bollywood heroine, but they are not interested in love life.
They don’t want to get married right now. They are breaking one of the oldest taboos that a girl should marry !!
Generation gap in love
We have recently seen many couples who found their love at later stages in life and that too with a person with a large age difference. However, marriage is the most elaborate personal ritual that an adult performs in their life.
But, in India, there is no greater event in a family than marriage, dramatically every possible social obligation, kinship bond, traditional values, sentimental feelings and economic resources.
Marriage is considered essential for almost everyone and it is considered as soul meaning for a woman’s life.
However, some Bollywood actresses broke all the norms of society in order to live life in their own way. A perfect example of an actress who broke the stereotype of marrying a man with a generation gap is Priyanka Chopra. She recently married Nick Jonas, with an age difference of around 10 years !!
Accepting body type
Bollywood is an industry where you have to have a curvy body and it feels great to be an actress !! right? No!! There has always been a tradition and a misconception that only thin girls are beautiful and attractive.
However, the Bollywood actress has defined this misconception by accepting her body type and is performing brilliantly in the industry. Well, we don’t have to worry anymore because Bollywood industry is allowing actresses to get comfortable in their skin!
Actress Vidya Balan said in her interview that, at first she also thinks that thin girls will get more appreciation and happiness. But now she accepts the way she sees herself.
He said, this fat is a part of my body and I have to accept it with confidence and be proud of my body. So, this is the time when you stop thinking about dieting or hitting hard in the gym just to look beautiful to others but start doing it for yourself.
This love affair gained immense popularity !! As everyone knows, Deepika once had a serious relationship with her show co-star Ranbir Kapoor. She was madly in love with the actor and even RK curbed her rape. However, the pair surprised fans and Ranveer came into the picture.
They fell in love on the sets of Ram-Leela and married each other. It is quite surprising that Ranbir and Deepika are still good friends. You will find out why this is a big deal because they understand the deeper meaning of the relationship.
If you are saying that Bollywood celebs are the exception then do some research. John and Bipasha don’t want to see each other. Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita were badly separated, and the list is still on !!.
