A stardom life is always fantasy filled. The attention from people, the riches, the name, and fame is something many women dream of. The reality is only a few could reach the goal.
When an actress walks over the red carpet, her attire and beauty are what everyone out there, views. Behind her pretty smile, there would have been many struggles, pain, and rejection in the past. She would have crossed many hurdles to reach such a position today. An opportunity does not knock on everyone’s door. A few are lucky to reach the stage. There are many who have failed in the process and given up.
A shocking incident in Andhra Pradesh reveals a 16-year-old girl was forcefully fed hormone pills by her mother so that she could act in films. She had been taking the medicines for the past four years. Every time she consumed the pills she becomes unconscious and the next day her body swells with pain because of which she couldn’t concentrate on her studies.
The mother also tortured the teenager to become intimate with some persons, claiming to be filmmakers, who visited their house.
Unable to bear the agony any further with some known help she dialled 1098, the child help line. The Andhra Pradesh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights finally rescued her.
The medicines she had been taking could have caused several side effects. It would have affected her physically and emotionally. The ultimate aim to make her daughter into an actress has blinded her mother’s vision.
Is it a lack of awareness?
A women’s education is the most important part of her life to make her succeed. It is a long way to go but if she crosses it, she is sure to reach heights. After her education, she could have been enrolled in acting courses and could have attended auditions. When there is a goal to reach, the path taken to reach should also be straight.
There are processes and procedures to be followed in whatever profession she chooses. It is better to get advice from known relatives or friends if not sure of something instead of falling into unknown traps.
It is to be appreciated that at least now the girl resorted to help rather than allowing herself to endure the pain all the time.
Her mother would have dreamed to see her as an actress but the path chosen was incorrect because of which they suffer today.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
