Anil Kapoor: Bollywood heroes should encourage women-oriented films

The MI:4 actor feels that today’s Bollywood actors refrain from women-oriented films

Actor Anil Kapoor, who has worked in many female-centric films like Beta, LajjaJudaai and Biwi No. 1, says most actors today do not like being a part of films that revolve around women. “I see leading men are not very happy being part of a woman-oriented film. I think (they are) the best films ever made in our country, including Mother India, which was a female-centric film and is remembered till date,” the 52-year-old actor said here at the Lavasa Women’s Drive.

Anil also says that he is proud of his association with female-centric films. “I have worked in a lot of women-oriented films and I have been very proud and honoured. I had such a great time working in those films. I think leading men should support and encourage women-oriented films,” said Anil, a few days ahead of the International Women’s Day on Thursday, March 8.

Anil was recently seen in a cameo appearance in Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. He is currently working in Tezz, Race 2 and Shootout at Wadala.
