When actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Tisca Chopra decided to work behind the screen, they literally took the region in their hands and rocked with their sense of creativity and has given many notable projects. They are already a star on-screen with their acting skills and now they are showing the girl power in Bollywood.
While Priyanka Chopra already gained three National Awards for Marathi stint ‘Ventilator’. Priyanka Chopra’s Purple Pebble Pictures focuses on the regional cinemas in which ‘the story’ is the hero. Priyanka said in a statement in 2016, ‘We are a country filled with exceptional young talent and our endeavour is to provide a platform for talent across the entertainment business to showcase their abilities’.
We are aspiring to erase boundaries and create an environment where the content of the story is the hero: Priyanka Chopra
Anushka Sharma’s production house Lean Slate Films with her brother produced films like ‘NH10’ ‘Phillauri’ and ‘Pari’ and was appraised for its strong content. And she had also explored a different genre through Phillauri.
As a producer, there is a different challenge every day: Anushka
Tisca Chopra’s production house, The Eastern Way, has produced short films like Chutney and Chhuri. Tisca Chopra’s short film ‘Chutney‘ gathered a lot of appreciation from critics and viewers too. She said, “I have never thought myself as a woman producer, I enjoy it thoroughly. The sense of responsibility for everyone’s well-being and also making sure that you don’t waste time or talent is the most important thing.”
Well, there are outsiders in the production house who are making waves through content-driven films. ‘Priya Sreedharan’ who is debuting through ‘3 storeys‘. She thinks that with more women in direction and production there will be a better content film for women. She further added, “It is difficult and exciting because when you are an outsider, you have to go an extra mile to prove yourself. You cannot get easy access. I am not saying that people who have their family in the business get easy access, they also have to work very hard”.
Bollywood Industry is dominated by men and that’s why we have the women in business talk about how life is like in a field. More power to you girls you are making ways not just for yourself but for others too.
