Through the life story of two of the oldest sharpshooters, Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, Bhumi Pednekar’s upcoming film ‘Saand Ki Aankh’ metaphorically points out inequalities that women have generally faced across generations.
The star, however, feels the issue is a burning reality even today. “Women have faced inequality in our country ever since we can remember. It has taken a bunch of bold and courageous women to break those age-old moulds of discrimination, to bring about an evolution of equality in our country. That’s exactly what the Tomar sisters did. Unknowingly, they were part of a system that didn’t give them any opportunities because the society not only didn’t know better but also didn’t want the same for their daughters and granddaughters.”
The star is deeply inspired by Chandro and Prakashi’s journey, reports DNA India. She says, “In their 60s, they broke all shackles of patriarchy through an inspiring and truly overwhelming journey. Laughing, smiling with never a dull moment, they paved the path for a flourished future not just for their girls but for over 50,000 children. They are full of life, love, warmth, hope, fun and all things positive. Their story is one worth remembering. It’s a roller-coaster ride full of tears and laughs.”
About her upcoming film, Pednekar says there are so many moments in it “where you just want to go hug your mom for all she has done.” She adds that knowingly or unknowingly, it is always the woman of the house who get subjected to inequality. “It is her dreams that more often than not become secondary or non-relevant,” she points out.
‘Saand Ki Aankh’ releases on 25th October.
