Feminine Roles Are No More Generic Stereotypes: Actress Tisca Chopra

Tisca entered Bollywood with the commercial potboiler "Platform" in 1993

Actress Tisca Chopra says feminine roles are no longer generic stereotypes but people who have conflicts, dimensions, and trajectories.

“When I started out, there were three types of roles; there were three B’s. The babe from age 16-25, the Bhabhi from age 25-40, and anything over 40 was Biji,” Tisca said while talking about how things have changed for female stars.

“Fortunately, since then, things have moved and characters have now evolved to become far more layered, nuanced, lived in, and fleshed out. Feminine roles are no longer generic stereotypes but people who have conflicts, dimensions, and trajectories and are far more interesting to play,” she added.

She added: “We need more living and breathing characters with vulnerabilities and flaws.”
