Woman has More other than their Vajina, Sara Bhaskar Slams Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Woman has always been a topic of debate for their rights and private Parts, now once again a Bollywood Actress Swara Bhaskar sparked a debate by attacking on Sanjay Leela Bhansali, reminded him, Women’s life are beyond their private parts.
Veer Di Wedding Actress Swara Bhaskar has written a lengthy message and in a starting paragraph she appreciated Sanjay Leela Bhansali and expressed her support in his battle against the Rajput group so called Karni sena, of demanding ban on the movie Padmaavat.’ Swara Bhaskar also took a jibe at Bhansali and accused of inciting people of mass Jauhar, and glorigying the old ritual of Sati.
However, she concluded her letter by suggesting that the film reduced her and the entire female race to ‘talking vaginas’. Swara Bhaskar has worked with Bhansali in Guzarish. She also adores him, she felt a point which needs to be spoken. She left offended with the ending scene of Padmaavat, in which all Rajput women seen committing Jauhar together in order to safeguard her honour.
Woman needs to be respected, despite they are raped, Despite their husbands are dead.
Swara Bhaskar once again raised a voice on behalf of women wrote in her letter, Woman needs to be respected, despite they are raped, Despite their husbands are dead. male ‘protectors’, ‘owners’, ‘controllers of their sexuality’.. whatever you understand the men to be. Women have the right to live — independent of whether men are living or not.”
She further said, Women have the right to live as Men, Women are not only taking Vaginas. Yes, women have vaginas, but they have more to them as well. So their whole life need not be focused on the vagina, and controlling it, protecting it, maintaining it’s purity. (Maybe in the 13th century that was the case, but in the 21st century we do not need to subscribe to these limiting ideas. We certainly do not need to glorify them.)
There is life outside the vagina, and so there can be life after rape.
It would be nice if the vaginas are respected; but in the unfortunate case that they are not, a woman can continue to live. She need not be punished with death, because another person disrespected her vagina without her consent. There is life outside the vagina, and so there can be life after rape. (I know I repeat, but this point can never be stressed enough.)”
She added that the disclaimer at the beginning of the film condemning the acts if sati and jauhar meant nothing as it was close to three hours of Rajput worship. She wrote that while she understands that sati and jauhar are a part of our society, she wondered if that meant women-‘-widowed, raped, young, old, pregnant, pre-pubescent’ – had the right to live, because the film failed to treat them like human beings.
