Asian Women and Bollywood Oppression

17

The women in  Bollywood  do not have the same independence and recognition that the actresses in Hollywood have. In many ways,  Bollywood  actresses are still oppressed, even in their privileged world.

There are film industries around the world, but none are closer than producing many  Bollywood  films in Mumbai, India. Unofficially known as the “dream factory” by most in and out of  Bollywood  industry, it is an industry that produces more than 900 feature films during a given year. Most of these films come, against only a handful of different plots, with the main theme of a young man and woman. There have always moral values of family and traditions to be included in these plots, and many times a woman to be saved. These are the women of  Bollywood  that I chose for my main objective of this document.

 Bollywood  is an industry-based major with many leading men like Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan. These men and a handful of other well-knowns pay almost literally to monopolize the film industry  Bollywood . They are the “stars” of  Bollywood . The women of  Bollywood  have been much harder to succeed in making large to transport their reputation over the years a long-term career. There is always a worry increasingly older and being pushed by the young charges who are constantly introduced into the  Bollywood  industry and the fact  Bollywood  still being an industry dominated by men.

In the book “May you be the mother of a hundred Sons” by Elisabeth Bumiller, three major  Bollywood  women open up to reveal their own personal experiences  Bollywood , and that there is no such thing as a personal life when the spot of any kind, particularly in  Bollywood , we all. In addition, a  Bollywood  “do everything” on the stars is almost more important than their film failures and successes. This seems to be particularly true in Mumbai and industry  Bollywood .

During the late 80’s and early 90’s, three of the most popular actresses in  Bollywood  were Rekha, Dimple, and Sredevi. But there are also a handful of others who danced in and out of the star when they were on a role in the success of  Bollywood . Smita Patil is a success of these actresses. In an interview with Elizabeth Bumiller, Smita talking about it is really to be an actress in  Bollywood , professionally and personally. “Women who work in this sector did not have time for any type of normal life,” she said. “You are working ten or twelve hours a day with different men all the time.”You are constantly asked to emote, and it tends to become a high-strung emotionally existence, which leads to your commitments. The line is very thin.”
