Javed Akhtar Targets Jab Tak Hai Jaan
Javed Akhtar is unhappy with the way women empowerment is being shown in today’s films. He first expressed her views regarding women’s representation in the movie ‘Animal’ and now he has given his reaction regarding a dialogue in director Yash Chopra’s ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.
He said that today’s filmmakers are doing various experiments to create the image of a woman. But they don’t know who the real strong woman is.
Javed Akhtar gave the example of ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’. He said that Anushka Sharma’s dialogue in this film is – Before marriage, I will sleep with men with all nationalities from all over the world. Javed said , What is the need to work so hard to look empowered? He mentioned that the makers don’t know what a strong woman is called. That’s why women are not getting good roles.
He further said that there is no content in the film. Writers and filmmakers do not understand what the content is because the society itself is not clear about it.
A film cannot be made on the kind of content that people like. Javed Akhtar also emphasized that actresses like Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi did not get big roles like ‘Bandini’, ‘Sujata’, ‘Mother India’. The reason behind this is that people do not know what an ideal woman is.
