The Kudi Tribe of Wonder Women
Usually a normal affair involving greeting cards and social media posts, this Women’s Day sees the Angrezi Medium family present a unique souvenir to the ladies all over.
The makers have roped in some very inspiring faces to deliver an empowering message. The film’s latest song, “Kudi nu nachne de” asks us to just let the women be and have the freedom to live on their own terms.
What makes this number different is that, not one, not two, but eight top female B-town stars shine in it together for the cause. It features Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma, Katrina Kaif, Kriti Sanon, Ananya Panday, Jhanvi Kapoor and Kiara Advani and the film’s lead Radhika Madan.
Speaking of the tune’s relevance, Alia Bhatt shares, “The song is important for today’s generation. It talks about letting a girl be, let her dream, let her achieve and once she does, she will do wonders and take over the world. Just let her fly.”
Talking about its message, Anushka Sharma says “I have grown up in an environment where I was allowed to do whatever I wanted. My father gave me that. It’s sad that even now in so many homes in India, you don’t let the girl just be free. This is what the song is saying, to let the girl make mistakes and discover herself.”
On what the track means to her, Katrina Kaif states, “The song is about celebration of life. Of course, the lyrics say ‘Let Her Dance’ but for me dance is an expression of joy. The message of the song is also about letting a girl express her true self.”
Ananya Panday swears by it too, adding, “The song stands for letting the girl sway to her own tunes and I am glad that my parents let me groove to my own beat my entire life. I hope that all parents let their girls dance to their own wish.”
Kiara Advani is also vocal about her liking, “The song is every single girl’s inner voice. It talks of girls hoping to change the mindset of people, so that they live and let us live, let us be however we want.” she says.
Sharing her fondness for the song, Kriti Sanon deduces, “I absolutely loved the song; it is not only catchy but also meaningful. I completely relate to it. This song is about freedom. That’s one of the reasons I did it.”
Janhvi Kapoor shares a similar opinion, adding “I wanted to support this movie. It stands for letting the girl breathe free, and I am a firm believer of that. I couldn’t miss the opportunity to be part of the song.”
Last but not the least, leading lady Radhika Madan concludes, “The song is about empowerment. Let the girl dance, let her be and she will make the world a magical place.”
Looks like these “Womaniyas” have wrapped the perfect Women’s day gift for all the “Kudis”. The message is loud and clear: Don’t clip their wings, let them soar and this world will be a happier place.
