Selfie with the stars

The Hindu - - THE HUDDLE -

The ses­sion on women in In­dian cin­ema was smart, in­ci­sive and no-holds-barred when it came to the pol­i­tics of the coun­try. They were asked whether they, de­spite their ideals, would take selfies with the pow­er­sthat-be, per­haps to pro­mote their films. This was an oblique ref­er­ence to the selfie taken by Bol­ly­wood stars with Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi. Richa Chadha said self­dep­re­cat­ingly: “Per­haps, they do not want to take selfies with me.” And equally quick, Til­lotama Shome quipped: “They won’t be in­ter­ested in selfies with us, with the kind of films [art-house and niche movies] we make.”
