You say one word against the glam dolls aish, mallika etc and you get accused of being jealous of them. Try saying one single word praising sush and most male members here will pounce on you
I am so with you on Manoj Bajpai and Irfan Khan. Love both of them. On the similar lines, I find Nana Patekar grossly over rated. Liked him in his first few flicks but then got so tired of him.
But that's not fair. The only reason Mallika Sherawat gets support from the men is because she sheds clothes at the tip of a second. And then we have the same men giving out lectures of a woman's role in society, her virtue, her modesty. Then why do these rules change for the women in the family? Why are the wives and daughters expected to dress modestly, to cover themselves, and maintain their family values? If Mallika Sherawat can flaunt what she has, then why not the women in your home? After all, Mallika is someone else's daughter as well. A man has a right to look at another woman like that, but God forbid that someone looks at their own wives/daughters that way --- then all the morals and cultural upbringing come flying back into focus. I hate those double standards. I'm all for that desi image of virtue and modesty, but I can't stand the hypocrisy commonly found among desi men. Desi guys here go around with non-desi girls, living life to its fullest, but when time comes to settle they want a nice desi girl, who's never been with a guy before, and all that good stuff. Why? Why is it that desi fathers praise their sons for having girlfriends, in fact encourage it, but totally freak out when its their daughters doing it? Isn't their son dating someone else's daughter as well? Anyways ... don't get me started there.
Sushmita is the true essence of beauty, IMO. I love the way she carries herself, she's gorgeous. I'm sorry if men have such low standards and can't see past Mallika's unpleasant face or Aishwariya's stuttering speeches. But labeling our dislike as jealousy is ridiculous. Why not consider the fact that we're less biased and can see past their glamorous bodies?
