"There will be discrepancies, and ups and downs too. There were times when I was working in the 1990s that if a lady got married, she normally did not have the opportunity to come back and act in a film. But now, they are married and acting in films, and it's so seamless and nice, so I think lots of positive stuff for female actors in the film industry," he was heard saying in the clip shared by the Twitter account of BBC Asian Network.
