Given that the use of Dalit feminist theory in Bollywood films is a relatively new area of study, an article on this topic may have significant implications for both academics and the Indian film industry. Growing the intersectionality dialogue: Intersectionality, which recognises how many forms of oppression, such as caste, gender, class, and race, interact and have an impact on people's lives, is a central concept in feminist theory. By utilising Dalit feminist theory in Bollywood films, it may be possible to better understand caste and gender intersections in the Indian setting and how they emerge in the film business. This research could deepen feminist theory and broaden the intersectionality debate. It is important to highlight that Dalits are disproportionately underrepresented in both on-screen and behind-the-scenes professions in the film industry.
