A recent video by All India Bakchod – AIB has taken the internet by storm for all the right reasons.
The AIB video highlights the warped take of the industry on romance, with successive generations being brought up with presentations that normalise sexual harassment. The video commences with a voice over regarding an actual 2015 lawsuit filed by two women in Australia against an Indian man. They claimed that they had been stalked and sexually harassed by him. It is later revealed that the man escaped conviction by claiming his cultural background had made him behave the way he did.
By imitating some popular Bollywood sequences, AIB shows how most of them actually ‘enable’ sexual harassment. The video has gone viral on social media and won effusive praise.
Here are some comments from Facebook users.
