One of the most beautiful and most talented actors, Konkona Sen Sharma in a recent interview with Hindustan Times put forward some really important questions for Bollywood, which we think it’s high time for it to react upon. Here’s what she said:
I wish that Bollywood weren’t so youth and beauty obsessed when it comes to women. I think it is very ‘under representative’ of women in their 30s. It seems that the ideal age for a Bollywood heroine is 24, which is great, but it would be nice to see some older women too on the big screen.Who are these people who are taking these decisions of casting only young actors in films? It is the filmmakers and the film producers. I don’t know if that is what the audience wants because I really believe that masses respond to a good story.
