Nandita Das who is equally popular abroad and in India for her fine character portrayal in controversial offbeat films has stayed away from endorsing brands while many other Bollywood actresses do so to earn easy money.
The actress who usually voices her opinions on social media says, “I have never done ads despite the offers and temptation of more and quick money. Not out of any righteousness but…why would I want to use my time endorsing things that people don’t even need” on her Face Book.
“We keep pushing the line where we lose our freedom and enslave ourselves in consumerism. I have tried to stay away from this vicious cycle. Not always easy, but I try be mindful of my choices”.
Das agreed to give narration to the commercial Mia by Tanishq due to its content.
The hard-hitting poem in her voice is making the video a must watch and a reply to all the silly questions working women have to deal with, in order to survive in a patriarchal setup.
