Gurinder Chadha was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1960 when it was still a British colony. Her family moved to West London when she was a young child. Many of her films included the theme of balancing the dual and sometimes conflicting cultures of one’s family and of the country in which one lives. Bend It Like Beckham, released in 2002, was the story of Jesminder, the daughter of Punjabi Sikhs, who follows her passion for soccer against her parents wishes.

Through her determination, her parents gradually become more accepting of women in sports. Bend It Like Beckham, grossing over $76 million, was a critical and commercial success and won numerous awards and commendations worldwide.

Chadha said that, because of her film, Indian girls in sports are facing less oppression from their families. In 2015, the film was adapted as a musical which opened at the Phoenix  Theater in London.[/vc_column_text][rev_slider_vc alias=”women-in-film”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”More On Culture”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-cultureheadline”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-culturelist”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme…” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Cinzel%3Aregular%2C700%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” el_class=”sidebar-heading”]
