14 Lines from Kangana’s AIB Video Song that reveals the Truth of Bollywood

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. The song is a parody of 2015 mega hit “Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan”, and the lyrics reference not only broad sexist trends but the specific versions Ranaut has faced.

Look at the lines featuring the real-life incidents they call out:

  1. In the starting of the video, Kangana complaints to the director about a plot hole in the script and the director laugh her off for being “cute”.
    Kangana has spoken about being “fed up of taking directions from egomaniacs” in the past.
  1. Kangana directly calls out Times of India for publishing photos of Deepika Padukone’s cleavage without her consent in 2014.
  1. Kangana refuses to play second fiddle to the much-older actor in the video due to her “self-respect”…
    … A decision she’s repeatedly made with her actual film choices as well.
  1. Kangana refuses to kiss “influential film industry” ass. She has, in many interviews, claimed that she aspires to become a “fully autonomous brand” that can sustain itself with no help.
  1. Kangana deduces that she can’t have opinions on a movie because she’s a woman.
  1. She also calls out all the A-list actors, from Shah Rukh Khan to Salman Khan, continually playing romantic leads opposite actresses half their age.
  1. And she demolishes Karan Johar for taunting her as he said that he’s “tired of her playing the victim card” all the time.
  1. Kangana also shades her earlier film directors for putting her in bikinis to “titillate” audiences.
    In fact, after wearing a bikini in Rascals in 2011, Kangana swore off movies like that forever.
  1. 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.
  1. She once again shades the likes of Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan for profiting off nepotism and for taunting her.
  1. She mocks media publications labeling her as the “temper tantrum-throwing, demanding diva”.
  1. 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.
  1. And finally, the actor threatens to replace Kangana in the movie if she continues to express her opinions.
    Just like IRL, Hrithik allegedly asked producers to replace her in Aashiqui 3 because he didn’t want to work with her.
  1. The video even calls out the sexism in the song it uses for its commentary.
