All of us have seen dozens of movies where harassing the girl is presented as the “first sign of love”. Every big actor has done it, no questions asked! So many Bollywood movies have a plot that goes — boy meets girl, they hate each other, they battle it out for a bit, boy wins by body shaming girl, making unwelcome sexual advances on her, or even pretending to rape her (Remember ‘Dil’?).
AIB’s aptly named video ‘Harassment Through the Ages’ is a brilliant commentary on Bollywood’s tendency to trivialize, even mandate, eve-teasing as a precursor to romance. It is an absolute must-watch!
