Actor Shraddha Srinath visited her Instagram page on Monday to congratulate Varun Dhawan after meeting his longtime girlfriend Natasha Dalal on Sunday. And she took the opportunity to look at the underlying sexism in the film industry.
“Another good actor bites the dust. It’s a shame we won’t see him on screen again. Obviously, his wife and parents-in-law will not be okay with him trading with other heroines. Maybe he’s switching to male-oriented films? But how can you reconcile private and professional life? Tough. Will miss him. Congratulations Varun, ”she wrote on her Instagram story.
Critics have long claimed actresses are durable. It used to be believed that even top female actors would lose their desire factor soon after getting married. So Shraddha used humor to put this regressive view of society into the limelight and at the same time to wish the bride and groom.
However, Shraddha Srinath’s remarks seem to have upset some Varun Dhawan fans. In her latest Instagram story, she explained the reasons for her sarcastic remarks.
“I took a jibe in the Patriarchate yesterday. I just changed sex. And it sounded like a joke, right? It sounded absurd to all of you when I said an actor has to retire from work because he is getting married. Why doesn’t it sound just as absurd when the same assumptions are made about an actress? (sic) “, she asked.
On the labor front, Shraddha Srinath was last seen in Maara, the official remake of the Malayalam hit Charlie. She shared the screen area with Madhavan in the film, which premiered directly on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month. She is now waiting for the release of Chakra.
