Aahana Kumra lauds the boost in the number of female-fronted films in Hindi cinema, but feels that more needs to be done in that space. She says, “We need women in various aspects of filmmaking”, be it as actors, directors, camera persons or editors, as that would help highlight their perspective on issues. At times, I feel that men are still not comfortable with women getting all the attention,” adds Aahana. Not just more women, she also bats for a variety of films around women. “A lot of times, films highlight the plight of women, or for that matter, there are revenge dramas such as Khoon Bhari Maang (1998), Maatr (2017) and Mom (2017).
