Rani Mukerji was has turned 40 today wrote a hard-hitting letter to prove the ‘sexist stereotype’ wrong.
The actress is currently busy promoting her upcoming film Hichki. The film talks about overcoming hurdles with confidence and self-love. Rani has always assured to do films which can change the thinking of the society. She is not feared of being judged by the society.
The actress wrote, “As a woman I must admit, it has not been an easy journey. I have to prove myself everyday. Actresses have to prove themselves everyday. A woman has a short career span. A married woman’s equity dies, women are not bankable commodities at the box office, female centric (I hate this word) films are a huge risk, a married actress who is also a mother is the final nail in the coffin of her dreams, ambitions and aspirations – these are some of the discriminatory stereotypes that we have to live with and try to overcome every single day.”
She added, “I have tried to take on this sexist stereotype by coming back to acting after my marriage and marriage and I promise you I will continue battling these stereotypes with all my fellow stunning, beautiful, kind and talented actresses and hope to see our society and film industry mature further. I can already see the changes for the better and it fills me with joy.”
