Some actresses choose story lines that have a good scope of acting for them. Others choose scripts even if they have little to nothing to offer. The former is a bolder bunch and know that their talents should be utilized the right way. The latter however is a pitiful bunch that is forced to pick movies without a meaningful character to keep their career going. The problem here is not entirely with actresses because the scripts that are provided to them is what decides their role.
Times are changing in other film industries. Bollywood is producing more female oriented movies while Mollywood has always emphasized the roles of female leads. A few films like “Baahubali-The Beginning” have many strong female characters on board from Tollywood. Movies like “Kahaani” and “7 khoon maaf” show a very strong female character just like “Mary Kom” and “Queen”.
