Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - MEDHA SHRI DAHIYA

Ac­tor Swara Bhaskar (right) was re­cently in the Cap­i­tal to be part of a panel dis­cus­sion on the por­trayal of women in cin­ema. The Tanu Weds Manu Re­turns ac­tor loved the dis­cus­sion, as it was rel­e­vant to the so­ci­ety.

“Pro­jec­tion of women in cin­ema is a very rel­e­vant is­sue. Cin­ema in In­dia has a great reach, so it is im­por­tant to ex­am­ine and cri­tique the way it is rep­re­sent­ing women,” said the Delhi girl.

“While films like Queen, Piku, NH10 and Ka­haani give us a rea­son to celebrate, there are films that stereo­type women or deal with women is­sues in­sen­si­tively. In this con­text, dis­cus­sions such as these are crit­i­cal as they ques­tion the public per­cep­tion,” she adds.
