Actor Kalki Koechlin feels it is great to have a conversation about equality in the industry, and says it is important to keep the discussion going.

Kalki also said that it doesn't matter if the term 'feminism' is only being used since it is in fashion, as long as the discussion is on.

"It is great that it (feminism seeping into the industry) is coming in conversation. I think it is our job, and we need to keep that dialogue going and not just let it be a phase or fashion," she said.

The actor, who has films like Dev.D, Shaitan, Shanghai and Margarita with a Straw to her credit, added, "Feminism is definitely coming into forefront because the work force is with women."

"It is a new thing...There are a lot of questions around it but all these questions are great."
