Alia Bhatt has spoken about dealing with casual sexism and how she has received random sexist comments over time in Bollywood.
The actress admitted that at the time she didn’t realize the comments were sexist.
But after thinking about them, she realized.
Alia said it pisses her off when she hears such comments.
Speaking from her own experiences, Alia said:
“I think from time to time I’ve been faced with that – occasional sexism. Many times I wouldn’t notice.
“When I look back on it now because I’m so much more aware of it, it makes so much sense that ‘oh my god, that was such a sexist comment, or that I was basically a subject of extreme misogyny at that time. -the.
“That’s why now I’m so much more sensitive. Sometimes my friends say ‘what’s wrong with you, why have you become so aggressive?’ »
Alia then opened up about some of the sexist things people have said to her.
“But it’s not about that, just random things like ‘don’t be so sensitive, you’re so sensitive, are you in PMS’.
“To hell with you, I’m not sensitive, and even if I do PMS, so what the hell? You were born because women practiced PMS.
“It annoys me so much when people say these random things. It’s just casual. Things like ‘your bra shouldn’t be on a bed, hide the bra’.
“Why hide it? His clothes, you show off your underwear, I say nothing.
“It’s not like it happened to me actively, but there’s some understanding of how you should hide a lot of things as a woman.”
On the work side, Alia Bhatt is ready for the release of her first production, darlingswhich is set to release on August 5, 2022 on Netflix.
Alia also worked on her Hollywood debut, Stone heartwhich also stars Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan.
Opening up about working on the film while pregnant, Alia said:
“It was my first experience of a major English film in Hollywood and I had quite a task to accomplish as I was shooting in an action film for the first time.
“But I’m also pregnant, so there were so many layers to deal with.”
“But they made it so smooth, so easy and so comfortable for me. It’s something I’ll never forget because of the beauty and quality with which I was treated.
On her co-stars, Alia added, “I had such a great time filming with Gal [Gadot]with Jamie Dornan and with my director Tom Harper.
“I think we’re onto something pretty cool with Stone heart and I can’t wait for the world to see it.
