The success of Fida and Mahanati has given a huge boost to writers and directors. There are many directors who are ready with women centric stories.
Only the tier one heroes want stories weaved around them, even tier two heroes are wanting scripts written on them, they don’t want to be a part of a successful film.
Even if they allow women to do their part, most of their footage will be clipped and they will be confined to songs and dances and a few romantic scenes. Rashi Khanna got a right film in Toli Prema and we hear World Famous Lover too gives her enough footage to show her talent.
Samantha did Oh Baby and Shraddha Srinath did Jersey. People are preferring heroines to perform and gone are those days they would root for heroes. Be it Gopichand, Balakrishna, Sai Dharam Tej or Ravi Teja, none are inclined to see their films.
Even Akhil wants a Pooja Hegde and Sai Dharam Tej and Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas wants Nabha Natesh who did a good job in Nannu Dochukundavate and Ismart Shankar. Anushka, Nitya Menen are doing women centric subjects.
