The society has always hung men on a stereotype that ‘men don’t cry’. We need to start normalizing the dialogue around it and teach men that it’s okay to express their emotions and not have a guard up because society has set some very harsh expectations.
Aamir Khan, the perfectionist of Bollywood, is someone who is known for letting his emotions out in loose without any hesitation. He doesn’t really care about how society will perceive his masculinity if he broke into tears in public. In fact, he has somewhat tried to break the bubble of men who are asked what they should be.
