There is no doubt about the fact that the entire Bollywood industry is still plagued by sexism and hypocrisy everywhere you go. Now in a recent post about her song apple bottoms singer Neha Bhasin has taken some time out to call out the modern hypocrisy of people as they listen to music. Bhasin is best known for her music numbers such as Nai "jana" and "Dill diyan gallan." The singer has now opened up on the criticism she received after she put out her song titled Apple bottoms.
Taking to Instagram Bhasin wrote, "Another #throwbackthursday 2010 My album Tabaah, song #Applebottoms Gosh itni galiaan aur gandhi baatein mere baare mein hui thi because I made a song about my butt." "Today all rappers are talking about our whole body and people are loving it, " she added.
Another singer, Meiyang Chang joined Bhasin in raising the same concern. He commented on Bhasin's Instagram post and wrote, "You have made quite a point. Songs and videos objectifying/appreciating the female form have been lauded for decades. And when a woman decides to celebrate herself, it becomes cheap. Double standards and how!"
Neha was quick to respond to Chang's comment. She added writing, "I can write a book on my experiences that scared me for years....But I did learn with time I have to look ahead and be unapologetic. Growing up has its plus points. I teach my nieces to be strong ....We don't instill gender awkwardness in them."
The singer concludes writing, "I have been taken off stages for my costumes and shamed for it. And it was acceptable even six years back."
