Indian actor Taapsee Pannu has recently lashed out against patriarchy in Bollywood, in an interview with PTI.
India Times reports that Taapsee said in the interview: "I have understood the meaning of the word patriarchy in recent years... like if the father says you cannot go out, you don't question that. Your mother may agree with you but she is just running the house, so it does not matter. You have to be back in the house by 8pm because guys can't control themselves."
Reportedly, Taapsee also spoke about issues that give rise to gender discrimination within the industry. She opined that the only thing that will bring about change, would be the kind of work actors do.
Taapsee said: "Small things about gender parity and pay parity... But you cannot change that by just shouting that 'this is not right.' You have to ensure that people start to recognize that change through your work. Maybe the new generation will not see the difference, but the generation next to us will."

Taapsee also recently made news when she responded to a tweet that called her: "Bollywood's female Ayushmann Khurrana."
Taapsee responded to it by saying: "What about calling me Bollywood ki pehli (the very first) Taapsee Pannu."
Till date, Taapsee's most notable performances were in films like Pink, Mulk and Game Over.
