Gone are the times when beeps filled the auditorium whenever there was cuss word spoken on screens. With Censor board giving some liberty to filmmakers and allowing them to express themselves in the way they wish, there is marked change in the way dialogues are being mouthed by actors. It is not just men who are indulging in some cuss words today; even women are going the whole hog as can be seen in some of the recent releases or the award ceremonies.
Says an actor on condition of anonymity, “Seems like all these gorgeous B town women are in mood to have some fun, what with all the ‘gaali-galauj’ they are doing not just on screen but also in public. Priyanka Chopra, whom I have always considered to be this one sophisticated young woman, was so unabashed in this recent award ceremony that I saw. What a hoot she was with all her smartly camouflaged ‘gaalis’ and that too right on stage in front of hundreds of guests and millions of TV viewers. It could have been embarrassing but she made it all seem like fun.”
As is known, Kareena Kapoor was the one who actually started it all in Golmaal 3 where she indulged in some smartly camouflaged cuss words in her own sweet and innocent manner. However, someone who wasn’t so sweet and innocent with her language was Vidya Balan who shocked one and all when she went all out in Ishqiya.
“Not to mention Rani Mukherjee who looked at West for her choice of cuss words in No One Killed Jessica“, he continues, “I guess everyone is just joining the fray sans any regret. Call it the demand of the script but look at the way characters in Yeh Saali Zindagi. It seemed all real life and while it is difficult to imagine something like this allowed on screen till two years back, the fact is that it was all cleared by Censors this time around.”
No wonder, women too aren’t willing to be left behind and going the whole hog. Who would be the next to join the fray? Well, that would have to be seen. However, for audience it is sheer fun to see them giving all men-folk a run for their money!
