It is a well-known fact that Indian entertainment industry is a male dominated society, where superstars rule and actresses often remain their shadows. Of late, many heroines have come forward expressing their opinions on the existing trend and now popular South Indian actress Bhavana has jumped on the bandwagon expressing her viewpoint.
In an interview to Manorama Online, the actress said women in Malayalam cinema do not have the same acceptability as their male counterparts considering how producers market their films for satellite rights. She also said though she has been working since the age of 15 her successes haven’t benefited her. Successes of her films didn’t reflect in her remuneration.
“It is true that movies here are made looking at the market of Superstars, Women are still playing the second fiddle to male actors in Malayalam film industry” says the Adam Joan actress.
Bhavana said that she will definitely continue her work in movies after her marriage and thanked fans for the support. Bhavana got engaged to Kannada producer Naveen in March.
Bhavana’s latest film, ‘Adam Joan’ was released on 1 September. Directed by Jinu V Abraham, the action-thriller also has Prithviraj Sukumaran in lead role.
