The ingenious actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who will be seen sharing the screen space with the legendary Sridevi’s Mom, says that he is all for women-oriented movies.
Recently there has been a major shift from male-centric movies to women-centric movies like Mary Kom, Kahaani, and Dangal. "Mom" is soon going to be on this list with Sridevi essaying an influential role.
"I am in favor of women-oriented films because women are taking the lead in every field -- be it education, science or sports. This change should be welcomed by all," said Nawazuddin.
Adding further he said,"It is very important to portray a woman's individuality. Till now, women were used as objects (in movies), but now movies are being made on them," added the actor, who had also played a strict investigative officer in the Vidya Balan-starer "Kahaani".
The actor believes that women are equal to men, and the rise in women-oriented films is a step in the right direction for the film industry.
Talking about his experience of working with Sridevi the actor said, “She was doing this film like it was her first film,".
When asked about the character of his upcoming movie Munna Michael with Tiger Shroff, Nawazuddin said,"I am doing the role of a dancer. In real life, I am not a dancer and afraid of dancing. I can't even imagine dancing in front of Tiger. It was our director Sabbir Khan's wish that I would perform a dance, so I did."
