Actress priyanka chopra whose upcoming biopic on boxing champion Mary Kom has already created a lot of excitement. Priyanka said that women-oriented roles are still not welcome in Bollywood.
Priyanka interacting with the students of Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad as a part of her film’s promotion said, “Mary Kom is a film obviously about Mary Kom. First and the foremost, women-centric roles are not welcomed in Bollywood. While I was coming here, everybody was telling me that you are doing a fabulous woman-oriented film. When you get to watch PK or Kick so you say that ‘I am going to watch a male-oriented film’, nobody says that.”
Mary Kom is biopic on the Manipur-based pugilist who has been a five-time world boxing champion and also an Olympic bronze medalist.
During her interaction with the students, Priyanka said that there is an urgent need to eliminate the gender-bias from Bollywood.
She said, “Things will change for women in Hindi film industry the day when we go and watch a movie after seeing its trailer, without having any gender bias in our minds.”
Priyanka also said that in a male-dominated society, talent of woman is not getting recognized in contrast to their male counterparts.
This film is directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival which will be organized from September 4 to September 11.
