Navya shares how women want to be more independent 

Talking about the much-debated topic of toxic masculinity, Navya shed light on certain trends in society these days. She mentioned that after the concept of feminism gained prominence, women felt more empowered and wanted to be independent. Citing an example, Navya said that these days women offer to split the cheque when they go out on dates and added:

“Especially after feminism, and women feeling more empowered now, a lot of things they want to do independently. For example, today, if you take a girl out on a date, and you offer to pay, some people get offended by that. Because women feel that they are equally…”

Navya further asked Shweta and Jaya if they have noticed any change in how men used to act when the duo was younger and requested them to draw comparisons to what men are like now. To this, Shweta said, “There was always that thing that a man has to be strong and silent. Even when you’re dating, you’re waiting for the guy to come up to you, the guy to propose.” However, Jaya added:

“I would like that. It’s better for a man to propose, I’d be very awkward.”
