Film industry male dominated but there’s change: Raveena Tandon

New Delhi : Women in the Hindi film industry, both in front of and behind the camera, have broken the “glass ceiling” and have entered every male bastion, actor Raveena Tandon said on Wednesday during a panel of the ‘National Conclave on Mann Ki Baat @100’.

Tandon, the star of the 1990 and early 2000s Hindi cinema, said the film industry should learn from sister mediums TV and OTT (over-the-top) platforms, who are the leaders in paying women better and producing shows with female protagonists, respectively, she said.

“We also talk about pay disparity but in the TV industry today, women are paid much higher than their male counterparts, which is a great thing because of the kind of work they do and I think in our TV industry, women rule. In OTT platforms too, the protagonists are mostly women, women issues are discussed.
