Shabana Azmi denounces Oscars red carpet culture

The actor has been a vocal critic about the beauty and fashion standards set by award shows

Published: 11th March 2018

Veteran actor and activist Shabana Azmi is amazed to see the desperation to conform to set beauty standards at the Oscars red carpet, and called it a huge pity.

The actor, who has always been vocal about censuring the beauty and fashion standards set by international film festivals and award galas, did not mention which edition of Oscars she was watching. For many, the Oscars not only stands for celebrating the best of Hollywood, but also for setting fashion goals and beauty trends. The 90th Academy Awards ceremony was held on March 4 in Los Angeles. 

Shabana had earlier expressed her views on the red carpet. "What bothers me about red carpet, particularly Cannes, is that it's an extremely important festival where stunning films are shown and nothing of that ever comes in papers. It's always celebrities standing with one hand on waist, I don't know who decided that as an attractive position."

On the work front, the Indian actor is busy taking her play Kaifi Aur Main to international shores.
