Actress Aahana Kumra who was recently seen in the much controversial film The Accidental Prime Minister as Priyanka Gandhi Vadra spoke about the kind of films that women get in Bollywood.
During the recent media interaction via phone in Mumbai, Aahana said that the roles which are offered to women in Hindi film industry are not meaty.
“The kind of roles that come to women in Hindi films are different they are not usually very performance oriented and I am glad that some performance oriented work is coming my way because one job is going to lead to another,” the actress said in a statement to IANS.
Aahana Kumra who also worked in Lipstick Under My Burqa in 2017 said that she is happy with the work she has done.
When asked if she consciously chooses content-driven cinema, Aahana said, “No. I have not consciously chosen that. These are the films that are coming to me so, I think they have chosen me. It’s like my fate that these films are coming to me.”
Aahana also said that there aren’t too many films that get offered to women who are not from a starry background.
”I am taking the part that is coming to me because there are not too many films that get offered especially to women who are not from the star background,” Aahana told IANS.
Earlier, the actor also spoke about political films that constant interference of politicians will scare away filmmakers from making such movies.
Aahana said films should be watched without any judgement.
Aahana was last seen in the film The Accidental Prime Minister which irked some Congress leaders to call it a “propaganda” film as it hit the screens before the 2019 general elections.
