Bollywood’s talented actress Vidya Balan keeps on delivering top-notch performances with each of her film choices, and Sherni’s anticipated release is making fans very excited. In her film about a female forest officer on the hunt for a tigress, Vidya will be featured in the lead.
Vidya has seen that the world of show business has changed for women in general because she has been in the industry for quite some time. Vidya shared some of her knowledge about the same..
Vidya makes Sherni’s debut appearance as a forest officer on a mission to hunt a tigress in the jungle. Although most interesting was how the men in the film reacted to seeing a female forest officer leading from the front, the most striking thing about the trailer was the unusual sight of women serving in a senior position.
Reflecting on the reservation, Vidya revealed that the representation of women in leadership roles is not just an issue in movies, but across the globe. She noted, “I believe that is also true of the world at large, and it has been like that for quite some time. Men have held power, and they believe they know better.”
While making it clear that it is not their fault, Vidya stated, “It is not their fault; they’ve been raised to believe the same things we have.” She went on to discuss the traits that Vidya showed in Sherni, how she responds to others underestimating her, and why that happened. She went on to say, “I believe Vidya Vincent, who is a forest officer, is among the few women forest officers in that context. Though the task is difficult, you are unlikely to see a woman. She’s perceived as “patronizing” because you assume everyone else views her that way.”
She continued by saying that patronizing angers her, and Vidya said that something expected is patronizing. She asserted, “Naturally, I’m furious. But, I believe it irks all of us because we’ve all been on the receiving end of people underestimating us in the past. Despite this, however, she (Vidya Vincent) is determined not to let that get in the way of her and hold her back. She has few words to say, but she is a strong-willed woman who decides to get things done and do things the right way. Regardless of who supports her, she is doing this on her own.”
