Bollywood 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.
“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.
