Today even in films tackling the most "non-sexist" of topics have to have atleast a sexual scene. Sex or anything that sounds like it or even implies it. It rather shows how populist the industry can get. They know sizzlers is what is expected of them and that is what they make to offer. It takes no daring step to "produce" a film that will glue a veiwers atention towards the screen. Baring all is the only step that is taken in this direction and that is the rule that the industry has accepted much to the shame of its artistic standards. A recent survey was conducted by a radio station as to who is the most hottest woman between two leading ladies in Bollywood. The two options were Aishwarya Rai and Mallika Sherawat. Well, Aishwarya Rai in spite of being very beautiful had to concede defeat bagging scarce number of votes and the sex goddess Mallika Sherawat was the winner giving Ms. Rai no competition.
Has beauty taken the back seat ? Is beauty no longer existent ? Has beauty met it's death? Is beauty redefined ? Then what's the whole deal about plastic surgeries when people just want to look good. A pretty face no longer sells. Sex is not about just a beautiful face, it has more to do with attitude. Although the word 'attitude' may be over used, this phrase has been caught by choreographers in the modeling industry. No wonder, you may get to see super ugly women walk the ramp but have super hot toned up bodies.
Most female actors today have stressful competition from their counterparts. Indian actresses are showing more skin than ever. Love scenes are present in almost every move and actresses are getting bolder by the second just to out beat the actress who replaced them in their movie . The female actor who performs the most love scenes is the most successful actor today.
Raunchiness is the key word for the sleaze present today. Items numbers are the best example to convey the idea of sex. Item girls are the most successful and viewed stars on the silver screen. Every movie today has an item girl and every actress wants to do an item number by wearing extremely sleazy clothes and moving their love handles in every direction possible. The pressure to perform is so overwhelming that actress who made tall claims that they would never do a love scene or perform an item number are the first girls to shake their leg for these beat panting numbers. Bipasha Basu, Koena Mitra, Yana Gupta, Ishaa Kopikkar are the most famous item girls today.
As Indian society has become highly globalized and westernized , watching sleaze with your parents is not a big deal. Everyone enjoys sleaze and it's the nation's craze after football or cricket . Sex is the most novel form of expression to make any film a super hit. Ingredients for a successful film would include sex, shedding of clothes, raunchy dance numbers and an actor kissing every female actor with a story line based on sex. Well, your Bollywood hit is ready , served piping hot for your senses.
