It's been 16 years since Vidya entered the Bollywood industry; ask her if she ever thought of the film industry being a man's world she quickly replies, "I think we have been brought up to believe that it’s a man’s world period. So it’s no different with the film industry. But that’s changing, and that’s reflecting in our films. It’s no longer going to be a man’s world, it’s going to be equally our world."
