Shweta Basu Prasad, featured in “The Tashkent Files,” said the celebration of women’s films is not a new phenomenon as Indian cinema is known to progressively present women from the 1940s.
Referring to the changing image of women in Bollywood, Shweta said, “I do not think women-led films are a recent phenomenon, but rather that we are returning to the golden phase of Indian cinema, the most important change that has taken place The audience has begun to appreciate stories that are compelling, approachable, and relevant, and the audience has understood that a story has no gender, and that’s why they enjoy watching a movie with strong female characters. “
She mentioned the example of films like ‘Achhut Kannya’, ‘Devi’, ‘Ek Din Pratidin’, ‘Umrao Jaan’ and ‘Sujata’ and said: “These days the discussion about women’s films has increased. I say these days the female characters were well-written back then, so I think we’ll go back to normal. “
Shweta began her journey as an actress at an early age and received the National Award for her appearance in the movie “Makdee”. She was seen by the audience for her acting in “Iqbal” by Nagesh Kukunoor.
However, when most young people continue to work in films after their success, Shweta focused on training.
“Actually, it was my parents’ decision because I was so young to make a decision, and I think they made the right decision, so I had a normal childhood and did not burn out, as is often the case with many children’s artists My parents said no to filmmakers like Madhur Bhandarkar and Priyadarshan when they contacted me about “Traffic Signal” or “Halla Bol.” Honestly, I do not regret it because I’ve enjoyed my education, school friends and everything else normal girl does, “she said.
Commenting on her upcoming work, Shweta said, “I’m filming a movie with Raghubir Yadav. It’s a very beautiful story exploring the father-daughter relationship, one of the unexplored shadows of this connection, and at the same time questioning the fixed definition of beauty in our company, I am so glad that I have the chance to work with a great actor like him. “
