‘I liked what Deepika (Padukone) did in ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Chennai Express’: Madhuri Dixit

Madhuri, however, feels women now have a bigger say in the industry compared to earlier times.

“There was a time in films when I never saw a female assistant director, camera person or make-up person. There were very few women directors who you could count on your fingers. Now there are so many women working in different aspects of filmmaking. There are talented women directors like Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti. The sensibilities are changing,” the actress said.

Madhuri also credits new age directors for thinking beyond stereotypes when it comes to female performers.

“The new age directors see women in a different light and write good roles for women. They are no longer caricatures of say an avenger, a victim, or an eye candy. They are people, they are characters.

“What is amazing is that this is happening in mainstream. I liked what Deepika (Padukone) did in ‘Cocktail’ and ‘Chennai Express’. I like this change and I think it is in the right direction,” she said.
