Kriti Sanon on gender discrimination in Bollywood

When Kriti Sanon mentioned at a public event that Kartik Aaryan was unjustly being given all the credit for the success of Luka Chuppi when in fact both Kartik and Kriti had equal roles in the film, she didn’t know she had unleashed a tiger that won’t return to the cage.

Kriti Sanon on gender discrimination in Bollywood

Trying to explain her stance on the issue Kriti says, “It isn’t as if I was ignored or side-lined. I have gotten credit and appreciation for Luka Chuppi and I’m glad about that. I was only responding to a question on the story headlines where websites and publications usually tend to ignore the female lead’s name and make it sound like it is only the male actor’s film.”

Kriti’s statement triggered off a chain reaction in the industry. Says Kriti, “Taapsee Pannu and Arjun Kapoor also tweeted on the same issue and it’s good that we are now at least talking about it.”

In the context of gender discrimination Kriti feels the solution in the credit titles is not to have the female lead’s name preceding the male. “I just feel it’s best to keep the order of the names alphabetically, and not on the basis of gender.”
