From ‘Feminist Sholay’ to ‘Feminist A Few Good Men’, these feminism infused scripts are a laugh riot

Bollywood celebrities never fail to surprise us. From depicting Karwa Chauth as patriarchal to campaigning against Diwali, we see all kinds of activism from them. Now that they are done shaming Diwali and finished having extravagant New-Year parties that were absolutely environment-friendly, they have found a new obsession. It is shaming the recently released Padmaavat for its alleged “regressive” portrayal of the Medieval customs and practices.

Shefali Vaidya, prominent writer and columnist took to Twitter to express her take on the new-found feminism and the tweet thread had us in splits. She imagined neo-feminist versions of several iconic movie scenes.

She starts from the Bollywood epic Sholay where Gabbar Singh has Viru tied up and is asking Viru’s lady love Basanti for a dance performance.

Then comes the 90s favourite Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge where a visibly agitated Simran is just being ‘set free’ by her patriarchal, Sanghi father. How indecent of Bollywood to have Simran portrayed as a caged bird. Shame on them.

The Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor starrer mega-hit  ‘Deewar’ comes next.

Ms Vaidya doesn’t spare Hollywood too. Understandably so, because after all, that is where most of our Bollywood gets their ‘inspiration’ from.

She comes back to another classic, Pakeezaah.

How can we mention Bollywood and forget King Khan and Farah Khan, especially, the extravagant dance drama called Om Shanti Om

Ms Vaidya, that was hilarious. Thank you for a good laugh amidst all the deafening lunacy of the post-Padmaavat era.
