Suniel Shetty has said that women should be given equal importance in the film industry like in every other working sector in the country. He also said that the meeting with the PM that included male members of the industry must have been a spontaneous decision.
Actor Suniel Shetty has said that women should be given equal importance in the film industry like in every other working sector in the country.
An 18-member panel, including Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Ajay Devgn, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Ritesh Sidhwani and CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, met the Prime Minister to discuss how to take the entertainment industry to the next stage.
Dia Mirza speaks about her annoyance on Twitter asking the reason for women's deficiency from the Bollywood designation of producers and actors who discussed the issues faced by the film industry.
Shetty agreed with Mirza, saying "Absolutely… I feel when you are giving importance to women in every other sector then; we should give them equal importance in film industry as well. I think their meeting with Prime Minister Modi was spontaneous that is why there wasn't enclosure of a female member from film industry. But I am sure that wasn't their aware decision."
A few days ago, experienced person actor Naseeruddin Shah landed in a argument when he termed Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli as the "worst behaved player" as he was concerned in a heated argument with Australian skipper Tim Paine in the ongoing India-Australia Test series.
After that statement, few media outlets quoted Suniel Shetty saying Virat is a violent player and "I don't agree with Naseeruddin Shah's statement."
