The Young Women in Film Roundtable

Filed under: What's new — Rajeev @ 7:07 pm


In this interview with Rajeev Masand, five young women who’ve brought a modern sensibility to the movies talk about the representation of women on screen, the men and women who’ve shaped their careers, and the films they wish they were a part of. Meet actresses Parineeti Chopra and Kalki Koechlin, directors Reema Kagti and Kiran Rao, and producer Guneet Monga who assembled for The Young Women in Film Roundtable.

(This interview first aired on CNN-IBN on March 08, 2013)


  1. kalki does have insight idea about acting,may be its because she had done theater before..but parineeti,although i think she has more spunk and she is more vivacious than her sister onscreen and offscreen but she is equally hollow in mind just like her plastic sister..

  2. Hi Rajeev. My main concern with the above presentation is the people you have chosen for it. Kalki, Guneet and Reema Kagti have done credible work to be featured. But Parineeti is just two movies old and Kiran Rao hasn’t proven herself at all. I might be wrong in saying this but I feel that this particular presentation was just done for the heck of it. As a sound minded critic, i think your responsibility is to bring out the hidden talent in the industry. The interviews done with the writers was a fine job. May be you could elaborate on that. No body wishes to know what Parineeti Chopra thinks about movies when she probably is unaware of the facets involved in the art. She has to prove herself first. Directors like Chandan Arora, Rajat Kapoor are never featured on the show when you know that they are such ambitious people. I respect you as an avid movie watcher. I would appreciate if you take out the time to reply to this post. I would like to know if there is a reason for all this.
