Women on television are now much bolder, stronger and better: Roopal Tyagi

Mumbai

On the occasion of International Women’s Day, Actress and choreographer Roopal Tyagi, who is presently seen in Dangal TV’s show Ranju ki Betiyaan talks about her perspective on the stereotypical representation of women on the television screen and how she is breaking such stereotype with her character as Bulbul Mishra.

Sharing her thoughts about this, Roopal says, “Yes, in recent years television has become a more women-centric entertainment medium because the target audience is the head of the household which is the women. Things are getting more real and the way women are portrayed has changed drastically over the years. Women on television are now much bolder, stronger and better. There are not just Sati Savitri, chup chap, Siddhi Nari sort of a woman. Similarly, my character Bulbul in the show is strong and doesn’t let anybody take her down. She gives it back to them be it physically or verbally. She does not take injustice and has no tolerance for people who abuse or try to hurt her family. I am happy that women are getting a chance to play such roles. Even if the character looks subtle, they gave their own charm and I am glad to see stereotypes been broken.”

We are sure that the audience is enjoying seeing bold and powerful women onscreen.
