How important is outer beauty?
In 2003 Sony TV had launched one of its most popular serial, Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, which was a story about a not very attractive girl and her love interest. The show successfully showed the importance of both inner and outer beauty. It also told us how we completely ignore the inner beauty of a person because of their outer beauty and it also explained to us that though inner beauty is very important outer beauty also has its own importance. This is simply because it is human nature to like what appears good. If we dont like the appearance of something from outside there are less chances that we will go near that person and till you dont go near someone you wont really find out about their inner beauty. Jassi Jaisi...gave the TV industry the very talented Mona Singh and also gave platform to Pardes actor, Apoorva Agnihotri.
Now in 2010 Sony again has launched another weekly serial, Mahi Way, which is about a girl who is very fat and is always teased by her sister, mother, and collegues. Mahi, played by Pushtie, is a very sweet, cute, and romantic girl who like any other girl of her age dreams about her dream man. However, she always finds herself dejected because of her health.
What is your take on on the concept of beauty? Does Mahi have the right to get the most dashing man on earth or someone who is just like her?
Do tell us what you feel?
