Actress Huma Qureshi says the role of women in Indian films is undergoing a lot of change in today’s times, be it on or off screen.
Huma was talking about the portrayal and changing role of women in Indian films on March 23 at UN Women, headquartered in New York.
“Back in the days there were very few women seen behind the big screen or in the technical side be it with editing, lighting, sound mixing etc. But today slowly that number is growing,” Huma says in a statement.
“More women in workplace has made the work environment more holistic more equitable. And all this reflects in our stories, our representation of women characters in our movies. I am very honoured to be talking about women at such a prestigious forum. I would want to work towards a more equitable world for all of us,” she adds.
Huma is awaiting the release of her debut international film, “Viceroy’s House”.
UN Women promotes women’s empowerment, rights and gender equality globally.
