Bhumi Pednekar Hate the term female-led projects from my gut!

Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar expresses her dislike for the term "female-led projects" that are used to label content headlined by women actors in India

Bhumi believes that gender should not define people's watching preferences and that the audience wants to see good cinema and content, regardless of the gender of the lead actor

She points out that she has built a successful career by portraying strong women characters on screen and that audiences have responded positively to projects that challenge patriarchy and showcase women as agents of change

Bhumi calls for filmmakers to produce more projects with the same budget and scale that male actors receive, citing successful films like "Toilet: Ek Prem Katha," "Lust Stories," "Dum Laga Ke Haisha," "Saand Ki Aankh," "Bala," and "Pati Patni Aur Woh" that were driven by women-led stories

She believes it is time to discard misconceptions and give projects led by women the recognition and support they deserve
