Jaya Bachchan questions the reason behind women opting for western wear
The recent What The Hell Navya episode featured an interesting conversation where Jaya Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan expressed their opinion about why Indian women opt for western wear more than Indian wear. The discussion kicked off with Jaya posing the question to her daughter and granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda asking, “Why is it, I want to ask you both, that Indian women are wearing more western clothes?” While Navya replied saying, “I don’t know,” Jaya asserted, “I’m just asking.”
To the same, Shweta Bachchan responded by saying, “I think it’s because of ease of movement. It’s easier to move around. A lot of women are now just not just at home, they are going out, they are getting jobs. It is easier to pull on a pair of pants and a T-shirt or a shirt than it is to maybe drape a saree.”
Adding to Jaya, mentioned, “I feel what has happened is very unknowingly, we’ve accepted that the western clothing gives that manpower to a woman. I would love to see a woman in a womanpower. I’m not saying go wear a saree that’s just an example but I think in the west also women always dressed in dresses. This whole thing much later in life where they also started also wearing pants.”
Shweta believed that the concept changed during the industrial revolution as she continued, “With the industrial revolution, when all the men went to war and women started working in factories, they had to wear pants because you can’t be doing heavy machine work with their dresses.”
