New Delhi: ‘Four More Shots Please’ is returning with Season 3 on Amazon Prime Video. As fans anticipate the release of the show this weekend, the cast members of the show Maanvi Gagroo, Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari and Bani J opened up about the criticism around the show. ‘Four More Shots…’ revolves around the lives of these four women as they navigate their professional and personal lives. While most of the show’s content has been appreciated, many have questioned the show makers for showing ‘too much sex’.
In an interaction with The Indian Express, the four leading ladies of the show opened up about the trolling the show has received recently. “Yes, the show is a lot about sex. There is also a lot of sex in the world,” Kriti said.
Kriti also added that they would say yes to all the criticism because everyone has the right to hold an opinion.
Sayani Gupta, on the other hand, asserted that the problem is women having the option to choose their sexual partners and talk about their sexuality and not just ‘sex’. “This (the show) is so rare. Of course, there is no representation of it in cinema at all. Even in real life, how many talk about their preferences or orgasms? You will be shocked to find the percentage of women who haven’t experienced an orgasm in their entire life, and most of them have multiple children. It’s just the mindset where we don’t talk about sex and women. It’s always tauba tauba.”
The ‘Pink’ actress added,“Sex in the industry, or even in general is used to titillate in a strange way. Asli mudde mein aate nahi hai (no one talks about real matters), even when it comes to men. Women to door ki baat hai (talking about women is farfetched).”
Maanvi Gagroo of TVF Tripling fame shared feedback around the show that she has personally received. Maanvi said in the same interview, “During season 1, they would be like what a nice show, kya mast show banaya hai… but say it in hush tones, almost whispering. However, by the next season, they expressed their love openly stating that they don’t care what their husband thought about it. And now, they have been eagerly waiting for the third season. They wish to live their lives vicariously through us. They say they had no freedom or maybe they didn’t think they could exercise their freedom when they were our age. So that speaks more of what the show is about than people just claiming it’s about sex.”
‘Four More Shots Please’ season 3 begins streaming on Oct 21, 2022.
