Women centric films are going to rule Bollywood in 2017
2017 seems to be the year of women centric films in Bollywood. Our heroines no longer need heroes to validate their existence. They are perfectly capable of pulling a film on their shoulders and making it a big hit too. Actresses are no longer a mere eye candy or objectified as a sex object in our films.
There is a tremendous change in the way women are portrayed in our films now-a-days. From Vidya Balan playing the owner of a brothel in BEGUM JAAN to Taapsee Pannu kicking some butts in NAAM SHABANA we are going to watch our actresses portraying all kinds of bold roles unabashedly.
