Cinema not the only means to change mindset about women: Kalki Koechlin

By
Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin believes that cinema is a “dominant” but not the only medium to change mindset of people about women.
“Cinema is a dominant but not the only means to change people’s mindset about women,” she said at an event on women safety in the national capital.
 The 32-year-old actress, who was seen in the role of a young disabled girl in Shonali Bose’s coming-of-age drama “Margarita with a Straw”, said, “there is no single source that can mobilise or change the thinking of an entire society.

“Various sources and different mediums appeal to different people just like ‘Margarita with a Straw’ would appeal to a certain section of society. And that is why we need to continue our struggle at all fronts and through all the possible means,” she added.
 The actress further said, “We need hundred different types of people doing hundred different types of things in the works that they do at different levels at different places (to bring about the change). There will not be one magic moment, one magic video that is going to change the whole mindset.”
Kalki says the definition of empowerment is also different.
