Indian cinema has always mirrored our society-the ideologies of the nation, the culture, lingo and even the style or persona that people here carry.
From portraying the best and worst of the societies, Bollywood has also carved the way for appreciating what need to be though off, be it corruption, injustice and other social issues too.
Among these serious-sensitive issues, what have we time and again seen on the big screen being talked about is the issue of women empowerment and all subjects that touch the niche of women in the nation.
