Comparing Madhubala with Deepika Padukone
When some one saw Madhubala in some 60’s movie he would say “Wow”
When some one sees Deepika Padukone in any of todays movie he says “Wow”
The only difference is the sentence has a changed ending.
Earlier, it was “Wow what a performance” and not it is “Wow she’s looking hot”
The times have changed over the years and so has the public preferences.
Earlier people used to give more importance to the acting skills and now the looks. The looks were important earlier too, Madhubala is till date one of the most beautiful actresses Bollywood has had. But now the acting skills have taken a back seat.
I am not directly comparing the legend of Madhubala with a newcomer like Deepika Padukone, but signifying as a whole, the preferences of people.
I do believe in the saying, “Old is Gold”
I don’t think people would have liked the performances of newbees like Deepika or Katrina back at the old times. But I am somewhat sure, Madhubala would have won people’s hearts even in today’s times.
