It is heartbreaking how many movies, in name of love, make us romanticize the toxic male characters. It is sad how many romantic movies are textbook pieces of sexist cinema. The insidiously problematic romantic movies are full of unhealthy misogynistic male characters, who are celebrated as romantic heroes. Many Bollywood romantic heroes act nothing more than a man-child, who refuses to understand what boundaries are or what consent is; These romantic heroes totally fail when it comes to understanding love. Rather, they are sexist, regressive, and misogynist. Here are some iconic romantic characters of Bollywood, who are actually jerks!
Dear Bollywood, we want better romantic heroes and not stalkers or kidnappers!
