After Farooqui Acquittal, Bollywood Divas Take the ‘Feeble’ Test
How do our Bollywood heroines fare on the Feeble-O-Meter in the ongoing consent debate?
Clearly, for a girl to simply say ‘no’ isn’t good enough. It has to be a strong rejection, because a feeble one could confuse a guy. At least that’s what Justice Ashutosh Kumar’s ruling in the Mahmood Farooqui rape case suggests. Bollywood as it is has never really been able to wrap its head around the idea of consent. So, we decided to run some filmi scenes through this Feeble-O-Meter to gauge how our Bollywood divas fare on Justice Ashutosh Kumar’s idea of ‘a feeble no may mean a yes’.
How do you think women in our films fare on the Feeble-O-Meter? Do our heroes know how to take ‘no’ for an answer? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
