What. A. Masterpiece.

Posted on

All India Bakchod just released "The Diva Song," a music video starring Kangana Ranaut calling out the various genres of sexism actresses in the film industry face.

All India Bakchod

Manasvi Mohata, Anuya Jakatdar, Ayesha Nair and Supriya Joshi deserve the loudest shout-outs for scripting this spot-on song and video.

The song is a parody of 2015 megahit "'Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan", and the lyrics reference not only broad sexist trends, but the specific versions Ranaut has faced.

Here's a look at the lines, and the real-life incidents they call out:

7. In the video, Kangana indirectly mocks Shah Rukh Khan for putting his leading ladies' names before his in movie credits while simultaneously pocketing benefits of the gaping wage disparity between them.

9. She also shuts down the archaic notion that an actress' career dies a sudden death if she gets married; a notion actresses like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vidya Balan, Raveena Tandon and the likes fight regularly.
