A lot may have changed for the heroine in Indian film industry, but actor Malavika Mohanan says equality is still far away.
Asked whether female actors have started getting better written roles today, Malavika said progress can’t be decoded in black and white.
“It’s a grey area. There are some roles which are amazing like Piku and Queen. These are amazing female protagonists…
“But I still think we have a long way to go in terms of equality,” Malavika told PTI on the sidelines of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019.
The Malayalam actor said she is waiting for the right script to come her way to sign her future Bollywood films.
“It depends on when I get a project I really like,” she said.
Malavika will next be seen starring in multi-lingual film “Hero” with Vijay Devarakonda.
“It will be released in all four southern languages. Maybe a Hindi version as well, but we’ll see,” she added.
