In an interview with theMoviean, Chatterjee chats and tells about dealing with sexism, her love for storytelling and the importance of catering movies on online streaming platforms. She’s been more than vocal about feminism and what we need to get from the concept. “Strong, weak, happy, sad, funny, tragic, genre, art-house, I don’t care. More women on screen, please!” she sighs. They say behind every successful man is a woman. But the truth is, behind and inside every successful human being is a feminine sensibility.
