According to sources, The film 3 Storeys a Bollywood movie directed and produced by Priya Sreedharan, which will star the likes of Renuka Shahane, Richa Chadha, Pulkit Sharma and Sharman Joshi, has caused a lot of intrigue on social media, thanks to Renuka’s new look.
While the cast has a mix of actors, the unit is dominated by women, says producer Priya Sreedharan.
“When I did my first film Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008), co-incidentally, we hired women to lead all the departments, and in 3 Storeys, seven of the 10 heads of department are women. Traditionally, the costume department would have women, but today we have female editors, writers, music composers – a direct correlation to this could be having more female directors and producers on set,” Priya says.
Renuka, who will be seen in a mainstream Bollywood film after a long time, says, “It’s been more than a 100 years of Indian cinema and we have been lucky to have strong female actors through the ages. Today is a golden time for women in front of and behind the camera. Women are truly becoming game changers in cinema.”
