MUMBAI: At an event organised by DLF Group’s DT Cinemas, the contribution of women in Indian Cinema was celebrated through the launch of a coffee table book Women in Indian Cinema.
The book was unveiled by Minister of State, Women and Child Development Renuka Choudhry and actor Kirron Kher. The keynote address was given by Vir Sanghvi.
The book pays tribute to the indelible performance of women actors and the evolution of their emerging roles in the Indian Cinema. From the beautiful Devika Rani, to the fiery Nadira, from the smoulding Smita Patil, to the exquisite Madhubala, from the intensity of Nutan to the irrepressible impishness of Jaya Bahaduri, from Dreamgirl Hema Malini to the outrageous Mallika Sherawat, this book is a tribute to all.
Commenting at the launch of the book, DT Cinemas CEO Kajal Aijaz said, â€œThe contribution of women actors in the Indian cinema has been unequivocal and unparalleled. It is truly a pleasure for all of us at DT Cinemas to pay tribute to these divas and recollect some of the sweet memories of Indian Cinema that are captured in this memorable book.â€
Expressing her viewpoint on the launch of the book, Kirron Kher, added, â€œIndian cinema has come a long way from the time when cinema was not considered a dignified profession for women to today where women have made significant progress. More and more educated girls from respectable families are entering the film industry.â€
