ah seems so rite, makes one wonder abt it. females are usually used in the background while the guys take over everything on the screen...i think it depends on how the film is made, actors and actresses both can have stronger roles and still have the romantic tinge to it...i think in bolly, the girls r usually left in the back as the glamour dolls while th boys go and fight and what not...think the girls can have the role of a fighter like they do in holly...
dnt mean to offend anyone...apologize in advance if i said something wrong to hurt ur feelings...
It is more to do with the way films are made in India ...in most films the story is always revolves around the actore & actress is just their singing & dancing!
There are hardly any films were women are given a strong character to play..if at all they are given it''s always a fight against the social evils like gurl - boy discrimination, dowry, forced marriage etc.
In most films the roles for actresses are always for age group below 30 - 25...so it''s hard for an older actress to fit in.
Secondly we ourselves are responsible a man is always young even when he crosses age 45 but a woman is considered old when reaches 30.
thirdly, for some strange reason we never seem to appreciate married actresses ..... we always find them too old or not fitting the role .....it''s all in the mindset.
Definitely Male Dominated!!!
Yes... The Indian film industry is male dominated. The reason for this is still a mystery. I don''t think I will ever go to watch a film dominated by a female (Kajol might be an exception...:))I wud go for a film starring SRK, or Aamir. These actors have given big flops, but they have also given humongous hits... People do not care who stars opposite Aamir or SRK, they only care about the fact that it is a SRK/Aamir film... And there is a reason for not casting young men opposite older women. It will be very much visible the fact that the man is younger that the lady and its not very much accepted by Indian people... newayz... I havnt been able to give a reason for the discussion here... but... i jst wanted to express my views...
Yes, it is male dominated industry. STILL. Sadly. Oh well, I guess it also does come down to this: Pairing a young newcomer actress with an older top actor is okay, but pairing a young newcomer actor with an older top actress is a no-no. No one really is wanting to see, for example, Rani pretending to be a college girl acting with some young 19 year old newcoming male actor. There are just certain stereotypes that are still hard to overcome for many people. When in reality, Shahrukh Khan acted with newcomer Anushka Sharma who is 19, and he is 43, and everyone accepted that as okay because it was just acting. It should be able to work both ways, but sadly it doesn''t.
