Sanjay Dutt’s Sexist Rant on How to be a ‘Real Mard’ in This Old Ad Will Make Your Blood Boil | Watch


New Delhi: Final evening, throughout a senseless scrolling session on Instagram, I got here throughout a video that made my blood boil. Not exaggerating right here, additionally, you will really feel a certain quantity of rage and may have tons of of questions after watching it. Properly, the video in query is an outdated Haywards 5000 advert from 2008, which has resurfaced and going viral on social media. (The web by no means forgets and rightly so!). Within the 2 minutes and 13 seconds advert, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt goes on an aggressive and misogynistic rant about how males today have develop into female, and exhorts them to develop into a ‘actual mard’. – – Bikini, Not Ripped Denim!

Dubbing his ‘marketing campaign’ as ‘Mardangiri’, the actor is seen bashing metro-sexual males preferring to preserve lengthy hair, get facials or put on pink shirts and asks them to reclaim their masculinity (learn: poisonous) by not indulging in actions usually thought-about womanly.

The video begins with Sanju Baba hysterically saying, “There’s a new form of dushman in our lives and we’ve to unite to struggle in opposition to it.” In accordance to the advert makers, this new ‘enemy’ isn’t any legal or terrorist, however a ‘delicate’ man, who takes care of infants, drinks ‘sissy beers’, or shave their legs and wax their chests. He goes on to describe how males today put on garments and use lotions like behenjis. All by the advert, the ‘macho’ actor says how these shameful ‘female’ actions are literally an evil plot to overthrow the true males of the society.

Watch the video right here shared on Instagram by person Ankita Mehra:

Apparently Sanjay Dutt himself has been noticed with a shaven chest, lengthy hair and floral shirts on a number of events and on display screen. I’m wondering, the place does this audacity and hypocrisy come from? In my view, the ‘actual man’ that he talks about is nothing however a insecure, pissed off one who has nothing however his false sense of superiority that this patriarchal society has gifted him.

Properly, to be truthful, the actor was handed out the weird script to learn and enact, however that in no method, excuses him for blurting out the regressive ideologies being masqueraded because the symbolism of manliness. The truth that he would simply babble nonsensical notions–that clearly might need impacted a younger particular person’s thoughts–for cash, is simply terribly unhappy.

As per stories, seems that the director of the video, Jerrit G. John, had been arrested and convicted for throwing acid at his then-girlfriend. Is that this the definition of a ‘actual mard’? If sure, then we girls, are very happy with our ‘female’ companions who drink cocktails with us, take care of the family, and stand along with us on an equal footing.

Provided that this abhorrent advert has resurfaced a number of occasions on the web and has been rightly bashed so, why haven’t the ad-makers and extra importantly, Sanju Baba come out with a assertion? It’s been 13 years. As a privileged, entitled Bollywood star, we count on extra from you, Munna Bhai! Till then, the web is not going to overlook.
