Padmapriya Janakiraman is a popular name down south and now the actor is making a Bollywood debut with Saif Ali Khan’s Chef. She will plays the role of Saif’s estranged wife in the film. Many not know that Padmapriya owns an association that promotes gender equality in the Malayalam film industry.
While talking about the association, she told a leading tabloid, “We aim at promoting security for women at work. We’ve noted that both, men and women are unprepared to face the hazards of workplace imbalance.” The diva also made sure that Bollywood need an organisation that protects its women.
Talking about the recent controversy about Kangana Ranaut’s Nepotism remarks, she said, “Many people claimed she was playing the victim card. But, that might not be the case. Any woman who has a distinct opinion is criticised. If we hope to create a conducive working environment, we have to start somewhere. Let us begin by agreeing to disagree.”
Chef is an Indian adaptation of Jon Favreau’s Hollywood hit, Chef, with the same name and will now release on October 6, 2017. In an interview, she said the plot is similar but everything else is different. She said, “Obviously the plot is similar, but apart from that, everything else will be different. The food, the setting, everything is very different from the Hollywood one, because there are cultural differences between the countries.”
