In the recent memory it would be difficult to find an occasion where a female actor would be shown in her introduction shot dead drunk with a bottle of whiskey in her hand walking with gay abandon on to the screen. Well, times are changing, so the earlier reluctance on the part of directors to take this kind of shot, and inclination of the female actor to be a part was not in existence. But Priyanka Chopra with her astute performance in ANJAANA ANJAANI has taken a step forward to change the norms of industry and has paved the way for the filmmakers to try out this genre with the female actors as well.

Though such scenes are very few in Hindi cinema, wherever they are there, they are in integral part of the film. Let's take a look.



SAHIB BIWI AUR GHULAM: Meena Kumari was probably the first female actress who had the conviction to carry on this role of a drunk lead actor and so convincing was her performance that there were whispers in the grape wine that she could do it as she was a drinker in reality. Well, whatever the truth, without being indecent Meena Kumari pulled it off with panache.
