Movies are art, and art is a source of inspiration for many of us. Some film characters offer us the kind of inspiration and motivation that is often subtle and underrated. And @kritipraa‘s tweet about Meera Pandit (Deepika Padukone) from Love Aaj Kal (2009) is a great example of this. In her post, Prakriti has pointed out Meera’s job of being a fresco artist and how it impacted her as a teenager.

Tweet, Love

And I think we can all relate to this in some way or the other, so many characters we grew up watching, inspired us with the kind of jobs they had. Especially because us Indian kids often grow up with our parents telling us to choose only the most stable and secure careers.

Here’s what others had to say about this super interesting observation made by Prakriti. While many debated over whether Meera was a fresco artist or an architectural conservator, others said that Bollywood shows people having the most random careers and jobs.

@rudrakshrudrb has said what so many of us were thinking.

I personally think it’s great that movies show people having such random jobs, it’s like a quiet revolution against Indian parents forcing their kids to choose certain careers for the sake of societal respect.
