Priyanka on female-led films

Priyanka said, “There’s a lot of pressure when you have a female-led film, and because we have so few (of them being made). We are seeing success of female-led films more and more, but that’s tough (to happen every time). When a female-led film doesn’t do well I feel the collective failure on behalf of all women. I feel we have taken them a few steps back. This has to work because there are a few of us who get the opportunity to do this, and we have to do it well. Whether there’s a filmmaker, actors, writers or any medium, hair or make-up, you just feel… I won’t let womankind down because we have such few opportunities.”

She also talked about Fashion, “I remember I met Madhur Bhandarkar sir and that time I was told, ‘Ladkiyan female-oriented films apne career ke end mein karti hai for National Award’ (Women work in female-oriented films towards the end of their career for a National Award). It was like, you have just started, you have done Krrish, Aitraaz you are having your moment… This was in the early 2000s. I liked the script (of Fashion). We were working for six months on the script. It was a passion project. We went to Goa, we worked on the character graph of (her character) Meghna Mathur, her emotional and physical journey. All I focused on was immersing myself in this girl.”

About Fashion
