Big Bollywood Celebs Run Aahana Kumra’s Kitchen | Know How:
She said, “Filmmakers really need to pay attention to the kind of roles female actors are playing on the web. How many strong female parts in films could you recall in the recent past? I take immense pride in saying that I’ve never repeated a character. I see so many heroines in films who keep repeating the same roles, and I do understand that they can’t turn around and say no because it’s a film at the end of the day.”
“When it comes to us, there are mostly heroine and mother parts. And then, when they write a few films on sportswomen or female cops, they end up casting the same actress for three different sports films or cop dramas. I’ve always questioned this scarcity of parts for women.”
She questioned, “Why more such roles aren’t created?” However, the actress says that digital space is creating creating varied roles for women. She also said that filmmakers would continue to make films that audience would watch. She explained it further, “That’s because they’ve to recover their cost and make profit. If big films aren’t made then small films won’t get funded. So, in a way, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar run my kitchen. Because of them, other small films will be made and I’ll get some roles in them. I’m indebted to these big stars.”
The actress was last seen in the film Khuda Haafiz.
