Shah Rukh Khan feels the attitude towards women is changing for good in India. The Indian superstar says there are lots of positive developments for female actors in the film industry.
The actor expressed his views on the changing gender dynamics in the Indian entertainment industry in an interview to BBC Asian Network. He was in London to receive an honorary doctorate in philanthropy from The University of Law, London.
“The roles of women and the kind of attitude you have at the workplace for women is changing for positive,” Khan said in the interview. “There will be discrepancies and ups and downs too. There were times when I was working in the 1990s that if a lady got married, she normally did not have the opportunity to come back and act in a film. “
“But now they are married and acting in films and it’s so seamless and nice, so I think lots of positive stuff for female actors in the film industry,” he added.
