Yami Gautham reveals why the term 'women-centric films' bother her

In her Exclusive chat with Pinvilla, Yami Gautham revealed that the much-publicized term 'women-centric film' which is used to describe a film which is headlined by a female actor, bothers her to a certain extent. "It does bother and it is the term that some people from media, they pick up and write and it is used also even by the actors. Unknowingly, even I may have used it somewhere because it sounds very nice. So now people are approaching, saying 'Ma'am yeh women-centric film hain'. I have messages loaded with that word - it is a women-centric film," explained the Lost actress.

"Then you realise you know, that it's telling you something. There is a reason why it is mentioned and you have to understand that. Kitna bhi annoying sound ho, all those things are correct. But the change will not happen overnight. The legendary actresses have done some brilliant work when all these words were not even there. I think it will take time. It is not the name, it is the film that works. Jis din achi filmon ka volume bad jayega, yeh term apne aap khatam hoga," Yami concluded.
