“Few people are trying, like me. It is still a very, very male-dominated industry and yes hopefully, at some point, it will be equal and I am going to make sure that happens,” she told the media in response to a question on her stance on the issue.

The actor was in Kolkata to promote “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”, which releases on May 22. The film is a sequel to the 2011 romantic comedy “Tanu Weds Manu”.
