in some cases they uplift the story but they don’t form the crux of the story Films such as Piku or Queen are a welcome but handful exceptions And if a woman is not shouldering the burden of the film then why will she be paid as much as her male counterpart There’s an easy enough answer to that We produce male-oriented films because there are more male writers and directors in the industry than women And why should that be the case Because apart from equal opportunity to women the female gaze offers an interesting perspective The series The Fall for instance is a feminist thriller When you watch it you realise it’s a feminist story about the violence of men over women in a patriarchal world More from the world of Entertainment: One of the best counters to misogyny is talent When people write roles for Kangana Ranaut and she holds up an entire film that is a push back against misogyny Success opens doors;
