She said that Change is constant and we have to go with the change. She spoke how the paradigm shift in gender roles happened from the beginning of our civilization. She lucidly explained this from her experience in the entertainment industry and the roles she played for example, a modern day independent woman as Devika or most revered historical figure as Jhansi ki Rani.
She also made a point that entertainment industry is playing a major role in gender equality through its themes, characterization and presentations. She explained that how women are still considered as a supporter and not as a leader.
