Bollywood normalizes abusive behavior

Over the past 20 years, the deranged and thwarted Bollywood stalker has evolved from nominal villain to an outright hero. In 2013’s Raanjhanaa (Beloved), our leading man, Kundan, stalks the object of his affections, Zoya, cutting his wrists when rejected, then breaking up her wedding. Her fiance is beaten to death, and Kundan himself eventually dies in pursuit of Zoya, saying he will be born again to fall in love with her. [link]
