With women centric films like TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, PIKU doing well, Sonakshi Sinha recently said that women are the new heroes.
Well, we bumped into her TEVAR costar Arjun Kapoor and asked if he agreed. He said, “If you try and underline it, it seems that we are preaching. What’s a fact is a fact. Equality is something which has always existed in society. It’s coming to the forefront through cinema now and that’s amazing. As long as films are made well and they do well, it doesn’t matter if it’s a men centric film or women centric.”
He went on to add, “I’m really happy that TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS, PIKU, HIGHWAY and MARY KOM all have done well. More than being female oriented, such films have had very strong female characters. That’s the important part. It’s not just designed for a hero or a heroine.”
