Indian film industry has remained a male dominated industry. Male actors share a larger frame and paid more than their female counterparts. Actresses have been seen as a decorative item in movies and dancing around the trees.
Married actresses were not seen on big screen as they were not offered films and if they offered any roles that are merely the mother or sister in law roles. If we look at Indian cinema, actors can become successful till they are 40-45 but actresses are debarred once they cross their age 30. There was a time when an actress passes an age of 30 or gets married, she was out of work and expected to say goodbye to Bollywood.
Times are changing and with the changing norms, the career of married actresses has now got a much deserved role in the Bollywood movies. Now they are doing more significant roles in films other than working in a commercials or reality shows on television.
Kajol and Aishwarya have surprised the industry by sustaining such long and successful careers even after marriage and motherhood.They both are delivering hits at box office while working in the best of films with the best of co stars and filmmakers. After marriage, Kajol continued doing acting while working in blockbusters like K3G, Fanaa and My Name is Khan. Aishwarya Rai is another exception as she married into the Bachchan family. After marriage, she appeared in the super hit Jodhaa Akbar, Sarkar Raj, Raavan, Action Replayy and Guzaarish.Both are still wearing a crown of popularity.
