Tia in Jawaani Jaaneman
A 40 year-old man’s life turns upside down when he comes to know that he has a 20 something year-old daughter. Starring Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Alaya F, the film soared high with its comic timing, some crackling scenes amalgamated with light tone life lessons. The effervescent Alaya F made her debut as Tia, a young, independent, non-judgemental girl who is in search of her father. She finds out, she is pregnant with her boyfriend’s child, but instead of freaking out she accepts her situation and looks for the best solution. Tia had an ease about her, honest, vulnerable and most importantly she taught us to be more accepting of others and willing to learn from our mistakes. Tia embraces life with her own flaws and mistakes done in the past to move on for a better future.
Reena In RHTDM
The cult classic ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ released two decades ago and made a permanent place in our hearts. From its heart tugging, soulful music to the sizzling chemistry between the leads, R Madhavan and Dia Mirza, the film made us believe in love at first sight. However, it was the character of the much in love Reena Malhotra that taught us that you can hold your own even without freaking out or losing your mind. She was the quintessential Indian women, who had her values in place but knew how to take a stand for herself. She held her own even in times of emotional mayhem and refused to be intimidated by either the situation or the people around her with dignity. Even after two decades these qualities remain utmost important in a woman’s life.
Radhika Kapoor in Bell Bottom
Bell Bottom was the story of an undercover agent code-named ‘Bellbottom’, who begins a covert mission to free 210 hostages held by hijackers. The film was led by superstar Akshay Kumar and was backed by a superlative ensemble cast. Vani Kapoor played the character of Radhika Malhotra, a RAW agent and Akshay Kumar’s wife. Radhika is level-headed and centred. She is a dutiful and responsible wife but is also driven and ambitious. Radhika taught us to manage personal and professional life with ease. Women do not need to give up their personal lives to pursue their professional goals. She taught us to juggle personal ambitions along with managing household responsibilities with elan.
