Lajja (transl. Shame) is a 2001 Indian Hindi-language crime drama film produced and directed by Rajkumar Santoshi. Based on the plight of women and feminism in India, the film satirizes the honor with which women are placed in society and the restrictions on them. The fact that the four women's names (Maithili, Janki, Ramdulaari, and Vaidehi) are all versions of Sita, the ideal Hindu woman's name, is a message in itself. The film features Manisha Koirala in the lead role as Vaidehi, the mistreated woman, while an ensemble cast of Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Mahima Chaudhry, Johnny Lever, Madhuri Dixit, Rekha, Ajay Devgn, Suresh Oberoi, Sharman Joshi, Danny Dengzongpa, Razak Khan, Gulshan Grover and Aarti Chhabria appear in supporting roles. The film failed commercially in India but was a major commercial success in the overseas.At the 47th Filmfare Awards, the film was nominated for 3 awards, including Best Supporting Actor for Devgn, and Best Supporting Actress for Rekha and Dixit. The latter also received a nomination for the Zee Cine Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role – Female and eventually won it.
