Great time for actresses in Indian cinema: Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra says Indian cinema evolving for good

Priyanka Chopra admits that Indian cinema remains male- dominated but says changed perspectives towards female actors have helped current times become great times for actresses to work in the industry.

"The film industry is male dominated but it's hugely fascinating to see how a change has come about. People's mindset towards actresses is changing so that we can do roles which are beyond playing just being a coy girl. It is a great time for Indian actresses to be in cinema," Priyanka Chopra said at IIFA in Singapore on Saturday.

She spoke at a press conference of her forthcoming film Teri Meri Kahaani, on the sidelines of the 13th International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) weekend and awards.

She was accompanied by co-star Shahid Kapoor and director Kunal Kohli. "Teri Meri Kahaani", releasing June 22, is a love story that spans across three eras - 1910, 1960 and 2012.

The actress, who won a National award for her performance in Fashion, said she is proud to have started the trend of women-oriented films.

"When 'Fashion' happened, everybody told me it is a big risk, nobody comes to watch women-oriented movies. I feel like I have kickstarted all the gamut of films being made with female-dominated parts," she added.

Priyanka Chopra revealed her journey so far has been a learning experience.

"Nobody can ensure anything in life. You just have to work hard. You just need to take care of the opportunities given to you. I am somebody who came to the film industry without knowing anyone.

"It was completely new for me as I started at the age of 17. Everything I have learned is my own. I have fallen, bruised myself so I take a lot of pride in it," she added.
