Gone are those days when women would weep and play 'abla naari' kind of roles onscreen. Today, actresses portrayed onscreen are no longer unrealistic and stereotypical. The 21st century concept of women empowerment has helped the female stars of today to attain that dream position, which was once just a mere dream.
