Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, known for speaking with impunity on social and feminist issues, said in a special conversation said that when she started her career in the film industry, many heroines did not understand the meaning of Feminism. Explaining the true meaning of feminism, Sonam says that Feminism does not mean growing a mustache by burning a bra.
Sonam says, ’12 years ago someone asked me if you are a Feminist, I said, yes … I am a Feminist. Hearing this, my PR team said that I cannot say this.
People will consider you un-feminine when you say this. Today everyone says that. 12-15 years ago, no heroine would openly say that she was a feminist.
Sonam further adds, ‘Feminists must know the true meaning, this is the correct and basic meaning, in every case, equal. Feminism does not mean you must grow your mustache by burning your bra. Many heroines could not understand the meaning of Feminism, now everyone is the understanding that thing with time. Most times there is more discrimination against women than men in society, hope will change, many people are trying to bridge this gap. ‘
These days Sonam is busy promoting the film ‘The Zoya Factor’ ready for her release. ‘The Zoya Factor’ is a comedy-rich film. The film stars Sanjay Kapoor as Sonam’s father and Sonam, or Zoya, is born as India wins the World Cup. They hear it in the background that the real credit for this victory goes not to the cricket team but to this little girl Zoya, who won the India World Cup as soon as she was born. With this, they hear it that this girl’s luck will make it famous in the world.
Let me tell you, ‘The Zoya Factor’ is based on the novel by Anuja Chauhan. Its story is of a girl who is considered lucky for the Indian cricket team. They will see Dulquer Salmaan in the lead role in this film made under the direction of Abhishek Sharma. It will release the film on 20 September 2019.
