Kiran Rao doesn't believe in women-centric films

Indo Asian News Service

Mumbai, May 10 (IANS) Filmmaker Kiran Rao, who made her directorial debut with "Dhobi Ghat" in 2011, says she prefers creating "challenging roles for women in films" over women-oriented movies.

"I don't believe in women-centric films, but I certainly believe that we should create films that have more challenging roles for women and I definitely will have that in all my films," she told reporters here at an awards function here Thursday organised by Women In Film and Television (WIFT).

"I would like to present women in all their diversity and colour. I think that's what we should do best because filmmaking is ultimately storytelling and I believe that to tell a story you need talent that women bring on the screen.

"I certainly will have more interesting women characters in my film," she added.

Talking about her next project, she said, "I have started writing. It's a long process for me since I am unable to write a script faster. Though I have started, but I will make it only if something good turns out."

Actors Imran Khan, Jackie Shroff and Kabir Bedi were also present at the function and felicitated the winners.
