Shraddha Kapoor is currently on a success spree. Her last three films- Stree, Chhichhore, and Saaho, turned superhit and have been ruling the box-office with humongous numbers. Next up, she has Remo D'Souza's dance drama film Street Dancer 3D co-starring Varun Dhawan, and Ahmed Khan’s action thriller, Baaghi 3 with Tiger Shroff, both slated to release in the coming year.
Besides her professional front, Shraddha has never shied away from talking about serious topics that need to be discussed publicly. She thinks that it is the responsibility of women like her who have realized their dreams to help other women make their dreams come true.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan India, Shraddha talks about women empowerment and says that women should help other women succeed. She said, "Women who are living their dream, who are given the opportunity to realize and see through their ambition, should empower other women to see through theirs. It’s our responsibility.”
On being asked what does she think about the notion that an ambitious woman is unattractive and pushy, Shraddha says, "It really depends on which country one is from, your upbringing, and the people you’re surrounded by. Yes, that has been the general notion in India, but a wave of change is coming. And the credit really goes to persistent women, all across the country, who have made this happen. For instance, till a few years ago, there were no female make-up artists in Bollywood, but now, some of the top artists are women! Even though the process is slow and we have a long way to go, women are changing the game."
Further, the actress says that she thinks that things are changing for the better for women in India. She adds that she feels strongly for women in Bollywood.
