Filmmakers scared to make women look different: Aahana Kumra

TIL Desk Bollywood/ For her role as Priyanka Gandhi in “The Accidental Prime Miniister”, Aahana sported short hair and a simplistic look — diametrically different from what the audience had seen so far of her in a show like “Yudh” or a film like “Lipstick Under My Burkha”. She feels the role will help the film industry look at her differently.

“People often look at you (me) as a girl next door, and not sometimes as a character. And I think what is interesting is that because there was a different look, and a different hairdo, I think now they will be open to giving me a different get-up altogether.

“I don’t know why do they (filmmakers) get scared to make women look different. We don’t even live in a country where everyone looks the same,” Aahana told. She finds it unfortunate how all the actresses today look the same.

“There’s no difference from one to the other. There was a Geeta Bali, there was a Nutan, there was a Sadhana… They all looked so different from one another.
