Actor (Web Series, Tripling and Pitchers)
Freedom means not being controlled. It could be in the form of speech, writing, acting, fashion or even one’s choice of profession. There has been tremendous growth but we need to see where we are headed rather than pat ourselves on the back for how far we’ve come.
Three things that come to my mind when I talk about the 70th year of Independence. Homosexuality is still illegal. Sanitation is still a luxury. Casteism, although hidden from our daily urban existence, is still ridiculously prevalent.
If I had complete freedom. I would uninhibitedly speak my mind in interviews. Very few female actors enjoy the luxury of choice. A lot is still ruled by age, marital status and body type. It is slowly changing though. At least strong female actors aren't rubbished as 'art' cinema actors anymore. It's very important for women centric films to do well commercially. But I believe the audience today is far more accepting of that.
