India – Bollywood Blockbuster Scandal Because Of Female Masturbation Scene (Video)

Though many outside of India don’t realize the significance, the number of Bollywood movies made every year is actually larger than that of Hollywood, to great Hindu pride.

Of course, that also means that Bollywood is starting to copy themes and genres of past years. They had their own superhero movies (as Hollywood has produced an overload of those in the past few years) and now their own ‘Sex and the city’ complete with a female masturbation scene.

Given that many Indian elders reportedly walked out during screening, we’re not quite sure if many in the public were ready.

‘Veere Di Wedding’ is, for western viewers, a mostly forgettable flick about 4 Indian girlfriends growing up with all the regular problems in life. Something European and American moviegoers have seen for years (think Sex and the City, Steel Magnolias, In her Shoes, The Craft, Frances Ha, …) But because it is one of the first Bollywood flights talking about such themes from a female per-spective through the eyes of four friends with different outlooks and backgrounds, the movie is proving to be a big hit in India.

However, just as in the Westernized economies, it is also a clash between generations as it shows women who smoke, drink alcohol, swear (the number of ‘fucks’ in the trailer alone are enough to wonder if you’re actually looking at a Bollywood movie) and have sex outside of marriage.

Even though the movie is riddled in scandal over a scene where one of the actresses (Miss Swara Bhaskar) pleasures herself, the mostly younger generation of Twitter users in India is very excited about it.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">‘Veere Di Wedding has an erroneous idea of feminism &amp; progressiveness - showing women drinking, smoking, using conrived cuss words &amp; talking about sex in every single frame but almost seeming apologetic about masturbation, one night stands &amp; body weight.’ I write <a href="https://t.co/IoeRl58h58">https://t.co/IoeRl58h58</a></p>&mdash; Ruhi Tewari (@RuhiTewari) <a href="https://twitter.com/RuhiTewari/status/1003632426164240384?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 4, 2018</a></blockquote>

The film critics meanwhile are divided, with Times of India’s Mr Sharanya Gopinathan writing "it's rare for a Bollywood film that dives into the randomness, particularities, humour and fun of being female and having good female friends, and the power that members of a group like that can draw from each other."

The public doesn’t seem to mind. Even though people do walk out during the masturbation scene, the film is proving to be a big hit and will be exported to China shortly. We wonder how they’ll react.

I enjoyed this because it offers truth about over half of humanity, removing a veil of denial and showing more of what it's really like being a human with a womb. Less difference than most males imagine.

There ARE high concentrations of Muslims where this film is mostly shown. May the Most High Creator G-d stop any attempts to kill people at the theatres, and contain those who want to cause harm.
