"I see leading men are not very happy being part of a woman-oriented film. I think (they are) the best films ever made in our country, including 'Mother India', which was a female-centric film and is remembered till date," the 52-year-old actor said here at the Lavasa Women's Drive.
Anil also says that he is proud of his association with female-centric films.
"I have worked in a lot of women-oriented films and I have been very proud and honoured and I had such a great time working in films which were women-oriented. I think leading men should support and encourage women-oriented films," said Anil, a few days ahead of the International Women's Day Thursday.
Anil was recently seen in a cameo appearance in Tom Cruise's "Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol". He is currently working in "Tezz", "Race 2" and "Shootout At Wadala".
