Mahima Chaudhry Says Back In The Day 'People Only Wanted Actresses Who Were Virgin And Had Never Kissed'; Adds, 'Things Have Changed For The Better Now'
Mahima Chaudhry talks about how things have changed for the female actors in the film industry as compared to earlier days.
Mahima Chaudhry, who made her acting debut in the 1997 film Pardes, is known to speak her mind. In a recent interview, she reminisced about the time when she had stepped into the industry and how things were different as compared to now. She stated that the industry has changed a lot for women now and they are getting better parts to play in the film including brand endorsements etc. She feels the change is good.
She said, "I think the industry is getting into a position where female actors are also calling the shots. They get better parts, better pay, endorsements, they're at a great and much powerful position. They have a longer shelf life than before."
Mahima further stated that back in the day, even the relationship status of a female actor had a direct impact on her professional life and the opportunities that came her way. "The minute you started dating someone, people would write you off because they only wanted a virgin who had not kissed. If you were dating someone, it was like, 'Oh! She's dating!'. If you were married, then forget it, your career was over, and if you had a child, it was like absolutely over," she said.

She also went on to talk about men in the industry and how even they used to hide their relationship status for their on-screen image. "Even Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak came, we didn't know he (Aamir Khan) was married, same for Govinda. People didn't show their children's photographs or expose them as that would tell their age. All these things have changed now," she said.
She stated that things have changed for the better now. She mentioned that a person's relationship status is no longer a deciding factor for whether they want to continue with their career or have a personal life.
