Lust Stories maker Zoya Akhtar: Flawed characters are closer to my heart

  • Print


Bollywood filmmaker Zoya Akhtar says as more and more women make their mark in the workplace in Indian society, it is reflecting in the country's cinema as well. "Every time we have a woman on-screen, we can empower her in a different way rather than just giving a speech on the importance of equality and empowerment. I think sometimes we have to show her as powerful. I think the influx of women at the workplace is also changing the narratives in our cinema," Zoya said while commenting on how the image of women and woman-centric films is changing in Bollywood.
