Shruti Haasan has redefined the word bitch in her latest video titled ‘Be The Bitch’. The actress has made a powerful video that runs for two-and-half minutes, a tribute to the word ‘bitch’ which is often used against women to degrade them.
She isn’t afraid to be called a bitch and the video has a complete command over the girls that define the word bitch in a deliberate manner. The video sounds sensible and the voice-over of Shruti with her husky sexy voice.
Be The Bitch: Shruti Haasan Isn’t Afraid to be Called a Bitch
Written and narrated by Shruti Haasan for Culture Machine’s YouTube channel Blush, as a part of #Unblushed series, which already had featured Kalki Koechiln, Radhika Apte and Amitabh Bachchan.
Shruti Haasan about her collaboration with Blush for the video, “I don’t believe one needs to fit into an archetypes or follow set norms. As an egalitarian, I am a firm believer that our understanding of certain stigma laden terms need an overhaul and that’s what made me do this video. I discussed the idea with the Blush team to come out with this showcase of the gutsy yet vulnerable woman of today who is otherwise labelled as “the bitch”. I worked on it further, fleshing it out with my opinions and how centuries of notions have coloured our vision and understanding. I am happy with how the video has shaped up – it calls a spade a spade – and well, it’s honest.”

The bitch buys lingerie for herself. The bitch wears what she likes. A Bitch isn’t afraid to have her heart broken. A Bitch isn’t afraid to tell you she loves you. A Bitch is a stud with boobs. Bitch is the only insult you could come up with for a women you left you. So, the next time you look at me and want to send me flowers. The next time you look at my face, my eyes, my clothes, my skin, my moods, my shoes, my voice, my vice, my sacrifice, my now, my then, my fight, my time, my love, my light, my heart, my mistakes, my very being, please sign the big red roses to the…
