The actor plays a matriarch of a crime family in the upcoming series Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo
Veteran actor Dimple Kapadia, who will be seen playing the role of a matriarch in the upcoming web series Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo, has spoken about how the portrayal of women on screen is changing with time.
She is playing the role of Savitri, a woman who runs a handicrafts company and uses it as a cover for her drug business. She is the matriarch of a crime family which consists of four women, including her two daughters-in-law and a daughter.
Talking about her role, Dimple said: "It feels absolutely exhilarating, we have always seen men taking on these powerful roles, and it's high time that women got a chance to showcase their strength and determination in such roles and playing a Queenpin certainly fits the bill."
On sharing about the portrayal of women on-screen and how it is changing, she added: "I strongly stand for embracing who you are as a person and showcasing that out there. There are a lot of films that showcase women as strong characters - one with multiple layers and emotional complexities."
"So yes, we are evolving, and so are our content consumption choices. We just need the right creators to tell the story, and with the advent of streaming services, now these stories can travel across the globe," she concluded.
Produced by Maddock Films, the series is directed by Homi Adajania and stars Dimple Kapadia, Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar, and Isha Talwar in pivotal roles, along with Ashish Verma, Varun Mitra, Udit Arora, Deepak Dobriyal and Monica Dogra. Saas Bahu aur Flamingo releases on May 5 on Disney+ Hotstar.
