Watch the trailer to see the fun unfold!
Do you know any man who claims women have all the good things catered to them on a platter and still want more? Have you ever heard a man say that India is a misandrist hell with laws biased to help only women? Have you been told you are a man-hater and have double standards just because you call yourself a feminist? Well, you will see all of those men in Kiran, our protagonist of Man’s World!
You have to break the rules and travel alone, at least once in your life! Here are 9 Awesome Reasons Why Travelling Alone Is A Great Idea
He happily cribs about the opportunities women get, whines about the unfair advantages offered to them, and challenges the Almighty to change the tables, so that he can reap some of the “benefits” as well!
When God grants Kiran’s wish, he is baffled with the ghor anyay that he has to face in a world where gender roles are reversed. From being harassed in a bus, to having a dorey dalnewali boss, to being at the receiving end of creepy pick-up lines at bars, and then getting shamed by a cop for the kind of clothes he was wearing, Kiran faces it all. This is a gender-flipped world where Kiran is served a big dollop of sexism, just because he is a man.
The best part of this series is the presence of our favourites ladies, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadda, Shruti Seth, Bhumi Pednekar, Soni Razdan and Parineeti Chopra! And, the series has been created in collaboration with Project Everyone, which … wait for it … is founded by British filmmaker Richard Curtis, who wrote and directed films like Bridget Jones’s Diary, Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral! Their main goal with this project is to stress upon the need for feminism for the empowerment of women. Feminism fights to dispel the myth patriarchy would have you believe about women as well as men!
This will be a four part web series, which goes live on September 29, 2015. And, we cannot wait to watch more of it!
