I'm in favour of women-oriented films: Nawazuddin Siddiqui
The actor believes that the rise in women-oriented films is a step in the right direction for the film industry.
Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who features in Sridevi-starrer Mom, says that he is all for women-oriented movies.
In recent times, there has been a shift from male-centric movies to those like Mary Kom, Kahaani and Dangal, which have strong women protagonists. Mom is going to get added to the list with Sridevi essaying a powerful role.
"I am in favour of women-oriented films because women are taking the lead in every field -- be it education, science or sports. This change should be welcomed by all," Nawazuddin says.
"It is very important to portray a woman's individuality. Till now, women were used as objects (in movies), but now movies are being made on them," added the actor, who had also played a strict investigative officer in the Vidya Balan-starrer Kahaani.
The 43-year-old actor believes that the rise in women-oriented films is a step in the right direction for the film industry. Having worked with Sridevi, he is in awe of how "dignified and disciplined" she is while working on the sets.
