From Swimsuits To Orgasms : These Actresses Gave Us Some Of The Most Talked About Scenes Of 2018 So Far
- Authors: Avipsha Sengupta (Editorial Team)
the year 2018 has been quite eventful for Bollywood so far. The year has already produced two major blockbusters with Padmaavat and Sanju and from small budget films like Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety to content driven films like Raazi have also done well. Even on digital platforms attempts like Lust Stories and Sacred Games have garnered a lot of praise and appreciation.
While the whole fraternity deserves the credit for giving us many enjoyable on-screen moments, it is the women in the business who have given some of the most talked about scenes of 2018 so far. From Deepika's jauhar, to Daisy's 'our business' to Kiara and Swara's masturbation scenes, these women have been behind some of the most talked about scenes of this year.
Deepika Padukone's Juhar Scene In Padmaavat
Starting the year with a bang was Deepika Padukone with as Rani Padmaavati in Padmaavat. The film which was anyway surrounded by mounting controversies was also in news for being one of the rare films in Bollywood where the actress got paid more than the two lead actor. However, while Karni Sena dominated the headlines pre-release, post release all every one could talk about was Deepika’s jauhar scene. Apart from being a cinematic spectacle the scene also raised questions about whether the makers glorified the horrible medieval practice of self-immolation. In fact, the scene got even more famous when Swara Bhaskar wrote an open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali slamming him for the scene
Swara Bhaskar's Masturbation Scene In Veere Di Wedding
One of the top news makers of the year, Swara was again in news after her famous open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali about feeling reduced to just a vagina after seeing the jauhar scene of Padmaavat for another scene, this time from her own film. In Veere Di Wedding, Swara was shown pleasuring herself and it was this masturbation scene that got the whole country talking. While some appreciated her courage and boldness there were obviously some people who did not find the scene too palatable.
Kiara Advani's Orgasm Scene in Lust Stories
The women brigade this year seemed quite keen on making headlines with masturbation scene. After Swara, Kiara Advani who was barely popular even after three films including one hit like MS Dhoni became one of the most talked about actress. Her orgasm scene in Netflix’s love story made sure that the country was talking about the actress. The scene was as hilarious as it was empowering. Kiara having an orgasm to the tune of Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham’s title theme is one of the scenes that 2018 perhaps will be remembered for.
Alia's Emotional Scene In Raazi
If there was one performance that made us talk without creating any controversies it was that of Alia Bhatt in Raazi. As the Indian spy married to a Pakistani army officer to leak sensitive intelligence to the country during the 1971 Indo-Pak disturbance enthralled everyone. In one particular scene where her cover is blown and her husband confronts her about being a spy and she point the revolver at him is one of the best scenes of Alia’s acting career perhaps.
Neha Dhupia's Masturbation Scene In Lust Stories
The list of masturbation scene is not over yet! Like Kiara, newly married Neha Dhupia also had a masturbation scene in Lust Stories. She was shown pleasuring herself with sex-toys in the library of the school that she is a librarian of. People literally could not shut up about the scene as it is not usual for Indian audience to see women embracing their sexuality so brazenly on screen. Partly hilarious and partly empowering this is also another scene that we will remember from this year.
Kubbra Sait's Nude Scene In Sacred Games
Netflix Original’s first Indian production Sacred Games has already garnered a lot of praise even on global platforms.The biggest asset of the show has been the stellar direction by Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane and a no hold barred performance by the star cast including Nawazuddin Siddique, Saif Ali Khan and Radhika Apte. However one of the most talked aspect of the show has been VJ turned actress Kubbra Sait portrayal of a transgender Cuckoo. Kubbra went where no actress has gone before and the scene that has Kubbra breaking down in front of Nawaz revealing her real identity not only involves full frontal nudity but also male genitalia on her body. One has to witness the scene to realize the impact it can have.
Rajshri Deshpande's Topless Scene in Sacred Games
Another actress that we have Sacred Games to thank for is Rajshri Deshpande who plays the character of Subadhra. Although we have seen the actress before in films like Angry Indian Goddesses and controversial Malayalam film Sexy Durga nothing prepared us for this awesomeness. One of the most talked scene of the year so far has been her topless scene with Nawazuddin Siddique. While many appreciated her courage and boldness, there were some who leaked the scene on porn sites and the actress later confirmed that she has been receiving lewd messages and proposals ever since the scene has become popular.
Shikha Talsania's Swimsuit Scene In Veere Di Wedding
After seeing her in the subtle yet racy short film, we were eagerly waiting for Shikha Talsania big Bollywood debut with Veere Di Wedding. Shikha undoubtedly turned out to be one of the best things about the films. While Bollywood is not new to actresses in swimwear, Shikha’s swimsuit became a topic of discussion as this was one of the first time the actress wearing the swimsuit did not have a size hero figure. Instead Shikha looked what most Indian girls would actually look like in a swimsuit and totally owned it. Even though a small thing, it is a token of Bollywood finally coming to terms with not setting unattainable beauty standards.
The Gaali Scene In Veere Di Wedding
In terms of controversies, Veere Di Wedding has given all other films a tough competition this year. One of the scenes where all the four actresses i.e. Sonam Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania sit in a bar discussing their life woes sparked off major controversies. Women using abusive language and discussing sex lives openly in a bar was a little more than what most Indian stomachs could digest. Yet again it divided the country on the basis of opinion and while some called it realistic and even empowering many questioned whether women abusing equals to women empowerment and some just went the ‘hai tauba' way for the ‘unsanskaari’ scene.
Daisy Shah's 'Our Business' Scene In Race 3
While all the other scenes are famous for being controversial or really impactful, this one is famous for perhaps being most trolled scene of the year so far. Daisy Shah’s ‘Our business is our business, none of your business’ inspired more trolls more on the internet than the number of bullets fired in Race 3. The non-sense ramble said with much swag in a serious scene is one of the most ridiculous dialogues we have heard in Bollywood and while people trolled it mercilessly, Daisy’s co-stars were quick to rush to her rescue and shut up the trolls.
