Actress Parineeti Chopra Talk About Dowry System while Marriages
Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra was present during the promotional event of her upcoming film Jabariya Jodi co-starring Siddharth Malhotra. The talented actress talked at length about the dowry system India and pakadwa vivah in Bihar.
Chopra who never fears to speak about women rights said that dowry is illegal and immoral but people follow it. It makes her angry that people have renamed it ‘gift’ so that it sounds good but dowry simply means putting a price on the girl.
Taking a jibe at the modern society she asked that though people call themselves forward, they ask for money and luxurious things to look superior. How is that even modern, if a groom’s family still depends upon the bride’s family to look better than others, they can’t afford the luxuries themselves?
