Abhiruchi Chand: Lyrics writing in Bollywood is not gender-biased

Abhiruchi Chand: Lyrics writing in Bollywood is not gender-biasedDebarati S SenGender inequality may be rampant in the lives of many professionals; however, it certainly does not exist in the Hindi film industry says lyricist Abhiruchi Chand. | TNN | Aug 10, 2018, 18:01 ISTGender inequality may be rampant in the lives of many professionals; however, it certainly does not exist in the Hindi film industry says lyricist Abhiruchi Chand.
Known for her heart-touching lyrics in the melodious tracks 'Buddhu Sa Mann' ('Kapoor And Sons') and 'Theher Ja' ('October'), this young mother does not like questions about gender issues at work. “People ask these questions often. Mujhe yeh sawal bahu t atpata sa lagta hai. Yeh kahan ka notion hai ki ladka khana nahi bana sakta hai aur ladki gaana nahi bana sakti hai?”
Talking about the industry she works in, Abhiruchi states, “Honestly, I have not faced any challenges specifically because I am a woman writer. The challenges are the same that any male lyricist faces in the film industry and that involves writing on the brief given to you, meeting the deadline or creating a nice song that people love and a song that everyone understands.”
Abhiruchi believes that there are challenges in this profession and this industry but not as a woman lyricist. Lyrics writing as a woman is nothing different from a man writing lyrics.
“The Bollywood music industry and its lyrics writing department are very open about it all and no one really bothers about gender issues. Having said that, now that I am a mother of an 11-month-old-daughter â€" I do have my own set of challenges. When I attend events or am working, a part of me is always thinking whether my little girl has eaten her meals on time, what is she up to etc. But that is the challenge that comes with being a woman and it is about me as a woman trying to balance my work life and my personal life. Till date, I haven’t faced any challenges as a woman lyricist."
