To this, he replied, “It’s not appearing as a film, but it’s a complete movement in the society. Thanks to Laxmi (Agarwal), it is because of her smile that this has been brought to light, and has reached the society now.”

Furthermore, upon being asked about changes in the society that he has witnessed in terms of women empowerment over the years, Gulzarji said, “These (Meghna, Deepika & Laxmi) women are from the new generation. Women and daughters have now come forward, and it gives me immense pleasure to accept that they do not need any guidance or support anymore. Look at the film industry today, there was a time when the technician team wouldn’t witness the presence of a single woman.. at max we’d have a lady who’d be a hairdresser. Today, those same women sitting at home now drive cards, work, they’re playing lead characters (in a movie). During our times, heroines were just made to roam around and used in songs (as mass appeal).”

Meanwhile, Gulzar, an Oscar winning film director has made some classic films like Angoor, Maachis, Aandhi amongst others.
