In the recent few years, we have witnessed the Bollywood industry dealing with women centric films that has portrayed females in bold and powerful roles onscreen. With films like Heroine, No One Killed Jessica, The Dirty Picture, Saat Khoon Maaf, we have seen actresses breaking the typecast and presenting themselves in more practical and pragmatic way.
Keeping the same in mind, legendary actress Shabana Azmi has requested superstar Shahrukh Khan to work in women-centric movies. It is said that Azmi's request came in to the picture, after SRK had promised to have his leading actress' name appear before his in the credits of the film. Like, in his upcoming movie Chennai Express, even the lead female Deepika Padukone has received the first credit than Khan himself.
Shabana Azmi had posted on her Twitter, "SRK glad you are giving heroines credit above your title. Please also do a few heroine oriented films in which you play secondary role to make it more viable." Well, we hope SRK takes Azmi's plea seriously and does a secondary role in women-centric films!
