The Indian Express quotes Shweta Bachchan as saying, ‘It’s not fair; for you, menopause is a joke.’
Women undergo menopause, Shweta Bachchan said on her daughter Navya Naveli Nanda’s podcast.
It was recently revealed that Shweta Bachchan, the daughter of Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan, talked about the stigma surrounding menopause.
In addition to expressing anger at women’s abandonment after reaching middle age, Shweta told how her children make jokes about menopause even though she herself is going through it.
Navya told Shweta that no matter how much she and her brother Agastya joke about her mood swings, it doesn’t amuse her.
When I am upset with my children, and I shout at them, they will say, “Oh mom is menopausing today.” That’s unfair.
Think about it for me, everything is going south.” It may sound silly to you, but it is anything but funny to me.
According to Shweta, menopause is one of the “most significant things” that women go through.
The fact that everything is mostly beyond your control is frightening, according to Shweta.
There are many problems associated with menopause, such as hair loss, weight gain, mood swings, and problems controlling body temperature.
It leads to many mental health issues for women to lose their self-confidence.
Despite the fact that people are still reluctant to talk about menopause, Shweta said menstruation is becoming more talked about these days.
Women, especially today, want to look 20 until they are 80 because there is so much emphasis on appearance.
“We (women) cannot do what we should be doing anymore, and I am really disgusted with how people treat us after the age of 40-50.” Shweta continued.
Why should women of my age be forced to live this way when they still have so much to live for and give? It is disgusting and appalling.
Shweta Bachchan never joined the Bollywood industry despite widespread perceptions.
