BEIJING — Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Dangal’ released earlier this month in China which has done a spectacular business and earned USD 72 million in two weeks. But Chinese feminist groups have come down heavily on Mr Peferctionist’s film.
They feel Dangal perpetuates stereotyoes about how a father forces his daughters to live their lives according to his whims and fancies.
Dangal is based on the real-life story of an wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat who took an oath to make his daughters Geeta- Babita wrestling champions.
But according to Global Times, Chinese feminists are lashing the film. One viewer said, “The father’s values make me vomit; he forces his daughters to live a certain type of life with his dream, with money and becoming a champion. You think the movie is about breaking gender stereotypes, but actually, it’s knee-deep in prejudice.”
While another viewer was quoted as saying, “The movie reeks of patriarchy and male chauvinism.”
Wei Tingting, director of the Guangzhou Gender and Sexuality Education Center has said those comments only show public’s anxiety around feminism.
“Women who want more gender equality are anxious about defending their own rights therefore apply feminism to every issue, while some men feel challenged by women’s rising status and attack feminism,” he said.Follow @gorkhapost
