Her death was initially reported by TMZ.com, citing unnamed family members, and later by Hollywood trade publication Variety and the French news agency AFP, which cited her manager. With such a huge discrepancy, it becomes imperative for political parties to attract this growing number of women voters, but at the same time, political parties — being primarily male fiefdoms — do not have the will to give tickets to more female political leaders. The songs sung during a Khodia performance have sexually suggestive subjects and being away from the male gaze allows the performers a kind of freedom otherwise missing in the everyday public life of Haryana — a State where rules of gender proscription and prescription are brutally, sometimes violently, enforced.
During her concerts, while Choudhary performs on stage, the camera often pans to the audience, revealing the many lecherous men who whistle and dance to her songs. Salman Khan's mass appeal has touched new heights post his 'Dabangg' success.
Welch, who is a former pinup girl, has revealed her conservative views on sex, women and the current state of our culture. Ankita Kundu is pursuing Masters’s in Women’s Studies from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. Her areas of interest include women’s rights, sexuality and socio-economic conditions, art and representation of women. In the study, they found that the individuals’ perceptions about preferred companion characteristics were aligned with traditional sex-role stereotypes. Men were more likely to choose stereotypically attractive feminine characteristics (appearance) over nonfeminine characteristics (financial, employment, and intellectual status) Explore the Exciting World of Dunder Casino!.
Our B-town boys are no less than the ladies when it comes to capturing the fancy of millions.
At the beginning of her career, she posed nude for a series of photographs by Tom Kelley. When she gradually became a famous star in comedy films such as As Young as You Feel (1951), Monkey Business (1952) and Don’t Bother to Knock (1952), those same nude photographs caused a scandal — but instead of damaging Marilyn Monroe’s career, they propelled her into the sex symbol status she became famous for. This movement from pop culture stardom to political influence is perhaps unique to the Indian experience, and those still baffled Choudhary's political rise need only to look at southern India to understand the dynamic between culture and politics, and how the latter feeds off the former. She went on to a career spanning more than half a century, appearing in more than 30 films and 50 television series, and as an entrepreneur was involved in a successful line of wigs, HairUWear, as well as a collection of jewelry and skin-care products. She later studied ballet before entering a series of beauty contests.
Recently, Nargis was at the show, Dance Plus, where she wore a stunning teal-coloured dress and might we add, carried it off pretty brilliantly. She perfectly represents the free-spirited woman of the 21st century.
As a consequence, the role of women has had major societal effects, including gender inequity. If Khodia performed in private is a metaphor for repressed female sexuality, Khodia performed in public — in front of scores of men — becomes a symbol of female sexual assertion. The film, a box office flop lambasted by critics and disavowed by Vidal as "an awful joke," also featured John Huston, Mae West, Farrah Fawcett and Rex Reed, among others.
Advertisers have resorted to employing what they believe would immediately draw the audience in an increasingly competitive climate to grab people’s attention. The attraction created is of women with their natural physical endowments displayed in explicit sexually enticing postures to products/services that have no connection to women. For example, Simon Davis, a former psychiatric social worker, studied 329 advertisements in Canadian newspapers in 1990, where they concluded that men were seen as success objects and women as sex objects. The film industry is perceived as a space of compromise and constant negative liberalism, yet what is shown and consumed is a result of hypermasculine expectations of a perfect body type. This furthers the idea of what counts as sex appeal in women, which leads to harmful habituations of intermittent fasting, not eating for days, anorexia, and surgeries to fit into the idea of sex appeal.
Actress Raquel Welch, who helped reshape the traditional image of the Hollywood sex symbol in an era when the movie industry was still overtly defining an idealized version of sensuality for mass consumption, died on Wednesday at age 82. Her death following a brief illness was confirmed in a statement released by her Los Angeles-based manager. Welch first grabbed the public's attention with her role in the 1966 sci-fi adventure "Fantastic Voyage," playing a member of a miniaturized medical team injected into the body of an injured diplomat and memorable for the skin-tight diving suit she wore in a scene where she was attacked by antibodies. Her success in that film was followed by an iconic appearance later the same year in the prehistoric fantasy drama "One Million Years B.C." depicting cavemen and women coexisting with dinosaurs.
Actors have praised an increase in female parts, including reports of a female 007 in the upcoming James Bond film, but sexism remains widespread, according to Plan International and the Geena Davis research organisation. After researching 56 top-grossing films from 20 countries, they discovered that female leads were four times more likely to be seen naked on-screen than male leads in similar positions. Thus, the concept of sex symbols is a reinforced terminology to perpetuate the idea of mainstream beauty, inducing appearance anxiety for those who do not conform to these ideals. The Korean beauty industry has its own set standards where women in news media were not allowed to wear spectacles until protests.
The reason both the BJP and Congress have their eyes on her, has to do with Choudhary's booming appeal, which has crossed over from Haryana's interiors to Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Punjab. When news about Choudhary "joining" the Congress broke, trolls had a field day targeting her online, hitting out at her "character". While in the former scenario, the male gaze is removed altogether, in Choudhary's case, the power of the male gaze is harnessed — made subservient even — to the kind of assertion seen on the stage.
Guys, in the meanwhile, will definitely try to emulate someone who has the ability to turn on girls all over the nation. Abhay has been quietly winning himself more and more fans and becoming one of the hottest pin-up boys. These men have sensationalised the nation with their style and their ability to relate with the masses. Girls swoon over the mention of their names and boys idolise them try their best to emulate the stars. The following 10 actors are those who, at present, ruling people's hearts and are their favourite pin-up boys. Scroll on for a look at Nimisha Bhanot's 'Badass Indian Pinups' celebrating sexually liberated, new-age Indian women for who they are and their own journey of self-discovery.
Recent information by the Women’s Media Center has provided disturbing statistical data on the representation of women in U.S. media. The report draws attention to the striking underrepresentation of women who determine the content of news, literature, and television and film entertainment, as well as the negative portrayal of women in entertainment television and film.
One paradox was that emotional expressiveness is a feminine attribute, but men place a lower value on it. Women, on the other hand, were more likely to value commitment in a relationship and to highlight male attributes such as financial, work, and intellectual standing. Moreover, as someone from within the Jat community, with a wide fan base, having made it to Bigg Boss — a TV show that has a cult following in India's Tier-2 and 3 cities — Choudhary represents aspiration, the idea of breaking away from the confines of small-town India, while being curiously rooted in it. We come to another aspect of Sapna Choudhary's rise, which is about the political importance that her stardom has fed into. Celebrities supporting or joining political parties is common (most recently, Gautam Gambhir and Urmila Matondkar), but a personality who has dominated conversations is one most Delhi journalists are unfamiliar with. Currently, the actress is busy promoting her upcoming film, Banjo, and as promotions go these days, she has been visiting reality shows on TV.
The Indian beauty industry literally thrives on selling the idea that fair skin allows you to achieve success. Thus, these critical ideals affect women in more unthinkable ways than one can imagine. "Raquel Welch enters into the arena of the American culture industry in a time when one of the products that rolled off the assembly line of that industry was sex symbol," said Robert Thompson, a media scholar at Syracuse University and founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture. "She came to represent a certain kind of sensuality for this culture that Aphrodite did for classical culture," Thompson said, adding that Welch had also been "an accomplished actor ... who helped to define the kinds of roles that women could play in a society that had some highly compromised ideas about gender."
Actress Raquel Welch, who is a former pinup girl, has revealed her conservative views on sex, women and the current state of our culture. In her book, 'Beyond the Cleavage', which recently came out in paperback, and which is part memoir part advice tome, Welch, 70, is incredibly honest about her shortcomings as a mother. And in an interview she laments the "vulgar approach to women today" in society. "I think there's too much homage being paid to pole dancers, let's put it that way," PopEater.com quoted her as saying. She also talks about being shunned by the feminist community in the '70s, the humility that her Christian faith has brought to her, and her conservative views on sexuality and relationships. "Yes, I am. I guess you could call it conservative. I think there is a lost art to being a woman," she said.
Miss Chopra, we hope you know that you've bagged a winner for yourself. While it is difficult to gauge in numbers the impact Sapna Choudhary would have on the political landscape of Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, going by the tussle between the two national parties in getting her on their side, it is clear that her importance cannot be overstated. In the previous election, post-Muzzafarnagar riots and a widening social distance between Muslims and Jats, the BJP found favour with the Jats. However, leading up to the violent Jat reservation agitations in 2016, the community began to feel that its interests weren't being met by the party. In such a scenario, it becomes even more imperative to situate Choudhary's rise to stardom within that violent landscape.
She briefly earned a living as a model and cocktail waitress before applying for film roles and breaking into the movie business with small 1964 roles in the drama "A House Is Not a Home" and the Elvis Presley musical "Roustabout." The very idea of attaching the notion of sex symbol to icons led to the practice of objectification and transforming ideas of beauty. What must have started as an acknowledgement of attributes in cinema grew into a highly poisonous stereotyping, the onus of which mainly fell on women. It is undoubtedly clear how women are projected and represented in media and arts.
He is being linked left, right and centre at the moment and we can't say how true they are but we think he does have an eye for pretty girls and pretty girls too, love to love him. Irrespective of his diminishing reputation, girls can't stop falling for him and guys can't stop following him (even in the love department). Shahid Kapoor took his time to emerge as a major star and when he did, nobody could miss it. That sheepish grin and subtle mannerisms manage to win just about everybody.

It was debutant left-arm spinner R Sai Kishore (1/25) and IPL star Ravi Bishnoi (3/24) who actually controlled the middle overs to save India from what could have been an upset. In this election, a sizeable percentage of Jat leaders have pledged their support to the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, in part also because of the solid grassroots work of RLD's Ajit Singh.
His fan following is like never before and everybody wants a piece of him.

Breaking on the screen with 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' Imran became an overnight sensation.

Those cute dimples and and understated sex-appeal seem to have a magical effect on girls.
Although Welch had just a few lines of dialogue in "B.C.," still photos of her appearance in a deer-skinned bikini made her a best-selling pinup and a global symbol. Sex symbols like James Dean and Marlon Brando embodied the “bad boy” image of the 1950s, while women like Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield were seen as the ideal of the blonde bombshell. While the sex symbol was only perceived as a sexual ideal until the 1950s, it became a symbol of the sexual revolution’s emancipation of bodies and sexuality in the 1960s. Raquel Welch, the film actress whose sultry, curvaceous looks made her a leading sex symbol of the 1960s and '70s, has died at age 82, news media outlets reported on Wednesday.
MissRepresentation.org, an organisation that “exposes how American youth are being sold the concept that women and girls’ value lies in their youth, beauty and sexuality,” is campaigning to shed light on this issue and empower women and young girls to challenge the limiting media labels and recognise their potential. Public figures with a solid mass base, like Choudhary, who can bring in both male and female voters, have a crucial role to play. This emphasis on "character", especially in the context of a female performer, offers an easy way out. It is the only way for the male gaze to reassert itself as both the purveyor and owner of the sexuality being asserted on stage (in this case, Choudary's). Because the men are removed from the equation, Khodia becomes a celebration of female sexuality, while at the same time also pointing towards its repression in Haryana.
Only recently, Kim Kardashian made into the news when she claimed that she went through a rigorous diet and training to lose weight in a few days to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress. This is the very example of how sex symbolism has affected the idea of ‘sexiness’.
In her interviews, Choudhary has said that she represents a form of dance which is quite popular in Haryana; 'Khodia', as the dance form is called, is key to her stardom in the Hindi heartland. In Haryana, Choudhary's home State, toxic masculinity is a way of life. The premium placed on masculinity is frequently echoed in instances ranging from the cases of honour killing and gender-based violence which have dominated the popular narrative of Haryana, to the State's extremely skewed sex ratio. His exotic looks bring about an element of mysterious charm in his personality. He is merely a few films old but has the knack for different roles and hence avoids getting stereotyped. Sapna Choudhary has brought this dance form, confined otherwise to the women's private sphere, out into the public.
Khodia is usually performed by women in Haryana during weddings — but behind closed doors, away from the male gaze. His journey from modelling has been with ups and downs but Arjun has an unmistakable sensuality about him which gets girls going gaga. Arjun is indeed one of the best looking men in the list and that only makes it even better.
