Women's Emancipation Is In Mind Not Body: Renuka Shahane

Panjim: Actress Renuka Shahane believes that women's emancipation comes from the mind and not from their body and feels that Amitabh Bachchan starrer Pink holds strong relevance in today's age.

"I think a woman's emancipation is in the mind and not in the body. Nevertheless, most of the time it has been projected in a wrong way.

"Widely onscreen, only sexuality has been explored as the way of emancipation but that way such projection ends up titillating men. Then, what is the point of it? However, a film like 'Pink' is very relevant on that context," the actress said during her visit to 10th NFDC Film Bazaar.

"The projection of women is getting more contemporary and realistic in films rather than television," she added.

The actress got into direction with her film Tribhanga and talking about it, she said that it's a story about three women of a family from three generations and their dysfunctional relationship.

"There is a divorcee author who has a daughter who grew up in a dysfunctional family and now she has a daughter who is a homemaker. How one day, an incident changes the equation among them and they develop a certain amount of compassion for each other," she said.

Though she earned fame from films like Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, TV serials like Kora Kagaz, Imtihaan and the recently released Marathi film Highway among others the actress is very choosy about her roles in films.

"Well, after 'Hum Aapke', people offered me similar roles but till the time something exciting is not coming my way, I will focus on my filmmaking.
