shades

among
many
others,
the
actress
has
portrayed
that
women
can
be
confident,
self-reliant,
ambitious
and
free-spirited
to
take
their
own
life
decisions.

Also,
the
actress
as
a
producer,
has
treated
the
audiences
with
a
new
brand
of
women
who
lived
their
lives
on
their
own
terms.

On
International
Women’s
Day
today
(March
8,
2021),
Anushka
Sharma
opened
up
about
how
she
took
a
conscious
decision
to
change
the
portrayal
of
women
on
screen
as
an
artiste
and
as
a
producer.

The
actress
said,
“Our
films
have
the
power
to
impact
change
and
if
done
correctly,
films
can
also
condition
people
to
make
them
determine
between
what
is
right
and
what
is
wrong.
By
being
clear
about
how
we
will
portray
women
in
cinema,
we
can
alter
the
mindset
of
people
towards
how
they
perceive
women
and
shatter
age-old,
regressive
beliefs,
customs
and
traditions.”

She
continued,
“I
think
I
have
been
conscious
enough
to
select
roles
and
films
that
I
felt
could
contribute
towards
changing
the
portrayal
of
women
on
screen.
It
took
a
lot
of
self-belief
for
me
to
do
this
as
an
actor
and
then
as
a
producer
because
I
was
somehow
swimming
against
the
tide
and
challenging
the
notion
of
how
women
were
so
far
portrayed
on
screen.”

For
Anushka,
this
decision
liberated
her
as
a
performer
and
a
producer
as
she
decided
to
focus
on
changing
the
mindset
of
audiences
towards
how
they
see
women
on
screen.

The
actress
added,
“It
was
liberating
for
me
to
stand
up
and
do
this
for
myself.
I
was
done
seeing
myself
as
an
accessory
and
I
vowed
that
as
a
producer
I
will
also
not
allow
any
woman
to
be
portrayed
regressively.
So,
my
film
choices
and
then
my
productions
are
a
testimony
to
the
fact
that
I’m
committed
towards
sparking
a
conversation
in
society
about
equality,
self-respect
and
empowerment.”
