Actress Anushka Sharma has said she grew up in an environment where she was allowed to do whatever she wanted, and hopes every girl can be free and experience life the way she did. This is the latest bollywood news.

“I have grown up in an environment where I was allowed to do whatever I wanted. My father gave me that. It’s sad that even now in so many homes in India, you don’t let the girl just be free,” Anushka said.

That’s what attracted her to be part of the video of the song “Kudi nu nachne de” from Irrfan Khan’s film “Angrezi Medium”. The song celebrates womenhood.

“This is what the song is saying, to let the girl make mistakes and discover herself. It’s so sad that even now in so many homes in India, people don’t let the girl just be free and be their truest self. I hope every girl can experience that the way I did,” she added.

“Kudi nu nachne de” is sung by Vishal Dadlani, and speaks for equality and respecting a person’s wishes. Bollywood’s leading ladies including Anushka, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Ananya Panday and Kiara Advani, got together for the special song.

Talking about tune’s relevance, Alia said: “The song is important for today’s generation. It talks about letting a girl be, let her dream, let her achieve and once she does, she will do wonders and take over the world. Just let her fly.”

On what the track means to her, Katrina said: “The song is about celebration of life. Of course, the lyrics say ‘Let Her Dance’ but for me dance is an expression of joy. The message of the song is also about letting a girl express her true self. Don’t tell the girl how to dance… let her express her true herself and the world will be a better place.”

To this, Ananya added: “The song stands for letting the girl sway to her own tunes and I am glad that my parents let me groove to my own beat my entire life. I hope that all parents let their girls dance to their own wish.”

Kiara feels the song is “every single girl’s inner voice. It talks of girls hoping to change the mindset of people, so that they live and let us live, let us be however we want”.

Sharing her fondness for the song, Kriti Sanon said: “I absolutely loved the song; it is not only catchy but also meaningful. I completely relate to it. This song is about freedom. That’s one of the reasons I did it.”

“Angrezi Medium”, revolves around a beautiful relationship between a single doting father, Irrfan and his daughter Radhika Madan. “Angrezi Medium” also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Pankaj Tripathi, Deepak Dobriyal, Ranvir Shorey and others. The film is presented by Jio studios and Prem Vijan.

Radhika feels “the song is about empowerment. Let the girl dance, let her be and she will make the world a magical place”.

Actress Priyanka Chopra has done some daring stunts in movies. She says she wants to do more as she enjoys action films.

“I have always done my own stunts. I trust my body immensely. I am athletic as a person. I just really enjoy action movies. I have done them in ‘Don’ and ‘Quantico’. I hope to do more of them,” Priyanka told IANS.

The genre is generally seen as a hero’s domain.

“I am someone who believes in a gender neutral world. I hope in my lifetime we reach a place where we say movies instead of female-centric movies, we say directors instead of female directors, we say athletes instead of female athletes,” said the former Miss World.

“I hope my children don’t have to worry about the fact that ‘this is an Indian female cricket team or Indian female movie’. We don’t say ‘it is a male-centric movie, so let’s go and watch it’. So why do we have to say that it’s a female (centric movie)? I hope that happens and I am seeing it more and more as the conversation… where girls are coming out of their shells, and parents are supporting in finding their own feet. My parents supported me in all my dreams and ambitions,” said Priyanka.

She has many projects in her kitty, including a superhero movie titled “We Can Be Heroes”. Will the audience get to see her as a superhero?
