Bizarre To See 50 Plus Actor Romancing Young Actress: Dia Mirza
Often many actresses have spoken about the male-domination in the film industry and several factors related to it. Even, some male actors are questioned about romancing heroines half their age in the films. It is a known fact that female actors in their middle age struggle to play the lead roles and that’s not the case with male stars.
Now, the same issue was highlighted by actress Dia Mirza. She shared her thoughts during a recent media interaction and said that it is bizarre to see a middle-aged actor cast opposite a young counterpart.
She said that said it is unfortunate to see older men play characters much younger than themselves. Giving an example of Neena Gupta, she said there are a lot of actresses who are struggling in their middle ages and aren’t being cast because no stories are being written for them. The actress further said that it is bizarre that a 50 plus something actor is acting opposite a 19-year-old actress.
