In her latest interview with the Hindustan Times, Konkona Sen Sharma spoke about the evil practice of sexism in Bollywood.
On asking why she mostly prefers to work with female directors, she said:
“I have met many men who are sensitive, and vice versa. We shouldn’t generalize. The problem is that there are not enough women directors. There is plenty to be done about that. There is a lot of sexism at play, with people taking decisions at a corporate level.”
Konkona believes that it is wrong to say women can deal with certain subjects on the big screen with far more sensitivity than men can. Do you agree?
