AIB addresses sexism in their sketches, says ‘will work harder to create content that’s inclusive’

India’s leading comedy group, All India Bakchod (AIB), was recently called out online for the sexism in their videos which is often overlooked, by two video producers. Sumedh Natu and Aayushi Jagad broke down some sexist patterns in AIB’s content which might not strike you as overtly sexist but deserve to be brought to people’s notice nonetheless.

Natu and Jagad brought up how women in AIB videos are often used only as plot devices and do not have well fleshed out characters unless the video is essentially about feminism. Women are seen in AIB videos but are mostly outnumbered by the men. While men go on to play absolutely ordinary characters, women characters often have little to no dialogue in some of the group’s regular sketches.

They also pointed out how the group has created some of the finest sketches and religiously produces content which calls out sexism in different spheres. They have collaborated with stars like Kangana Ranaut and Kalki Koechlin. However, when it comes to interviewing celebrities, they have so far stuck to male stars.

AIB responded to the video immediately and addressed the concerns of the people who had agreed with the points raised in the calling out video. The group, known for its polemic, realistic and progressive work, promised to create content that is more inclusive. AIB’s graceful response is also a reminder of how every disagreement on the internet might not be a ‘row’.

Varun Dhawan on director Shoojit Sircar: ‘Even after doing October, he is still on my wish-list’

PTI

His filmography consists of both commercial pot-boilers and content-driven films and Varun Dhawan says he has always tried to strike a balance between the two spaces as he does not believe in limiting himself as an actor.

Varun, who will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s romantic drama October, says he does not follow any rule book for success and his aim is to stay as diverse as possible in his choice of roles.

“There is no rule. You should not limit yourself as an actor. I sometimes feel like doing this or that or sometimes nothing. We have moods, feelings and I am trying to live life. I am a cinema lover, I love watching different kinds of films. It is not a conscious decision, I have been like this forever. There is no growth, if you do not try out different things. You will not evolve,” Dhawan told PTI.

The first teaser of the film was released recently and the 30-year-old actor says the fact that the film is not a “cliched love story” excited him about the offer.

“We are not trying to break any stereotypes (of romantic Hindi films). Our film is not a cliched love story, it is done to an extent. Now we are trying to show something new. I know the story is close to his (Shoojit) heart. The writing is so beautiful that I jumped in,” he says.

The actor says the experience of working on the project was so enriching for him that he wishes to reunite with Sircar soon.

“The beautiful thing even after doing this film (October) is that he is still on my wish-list. I want to work with him again and again. There is always a message in his films. And this film too had one, which I never knew how to tell people. Subconsciously I wanted to say this to the people. We want to say something that is right in front of you in life and we never learn from it,” said Dhawan.

October is set to release on 13 April.
