Bollywood: Bollywood is by far the biggest brand ambassador of eve teasing. So many Bollywood movies show the hero pursuing the heroine in such a manner that it is outright eve teasing and borderlines on sexual harassment.
That’s the method that is propagated to get the girl in your life. Real life is much more complicated and makes a goonda out of the boy and turns the girl into a nervous wreck. When Jaya Bachchan made such an emotional appeal in Parliament, did she once stop think what a bad influence Bollywood has on the reality of India?
Rajnikanth is such a big idol, but in Robot, there is a scene where Aishwarya Rai is almost molested by a coconut seller and at the end of it she and Rajnikanth can just sit and laugh over it as if it’s some silly prank.
This flippancy applies to almost every hero in every Indian masala movie.
Also why is it called eve teasing and not sexual harassment?
