National award winning actress Priyanka Chopra is busy promoting her upcoming film ‘Mary Kom’. She is playing the title role in the film which is a biopic of Olympic-winning boxer Mary Kom. The actress says that she does not like the term ‘female-centric’ in films as people should judge movies on the basis of content rather than on the gender of the protagonist.
Pee Cee said in an interview, “I hate this term ‘female-centric’ because it is demeaning to an actress and her hard work. There is no hype about male-centric movies, but if an actress is in the lead, it all becomes different and special. I don’t like that special treatment. Judge us on the basis of our performance and work, not on the basis of our gender. Treat our films as good or bad films like you do with films with a male lead”.
The actress also said that gender discrimination is prevalent in the country and Bollywood adds to it by treating actresses differently than male actors.
