The actress recently opened up about the patriarchy in the entertainment in the industry and made a sensational comment on two leading actresses, Samantha Akkinineni and Anushka Shetty.
In a recent media interaction, Raashi Khanna said, “It is still a male dominated industry but I think the women are making their way ahead considering the new kind of movies that are coming. If you want to stay for long in the Telugu film industry, you have to be a good actor like Samantha Akkineni or Anushka Shetty. These are the heroines who are changing the way people are looking at actresses down South, which was not there earlier. Previously, the heroines were expected to be beautiful and dance well in the song sequences. But now, they are required to act or perform.” She added, “There is patriarchy in the film industry but the women continue to show their talent and grow in this industry.”

Talking about the film, she recently said, “It is amazing to be collaborating with the best in the industry. Vikram Kumar is a gifted director and working with Chaitanya keeps me on my toes. The cinematographer of the film P C Sriram sir is fantastic at what he does and I always wanted to work with him. Here in Turin and Milan the COVID-19 cases are not as many as they are everywhere else. We are a very small unit and we’re taking all the necessary precautions. I’m excited to be shooting this wonderful film. Although I’m here, my heart is still in my country.”
