Madhur Bhandarkar is popular for making women-oriented films like "Chandni Bar", "Page 3" and "Fashion" and the filmmaker clarifies that this doesn't mean he is gender-biased and says his only aim is to make good movies.
"For me, it is very necessary to make a good film, which garners success and critical acclaim. National Awards definitely come later," said Bhandarkar.
"I am never gender-biased. I would agree that the ratio of female actresses is more in my films and that's why people think I make only women-oriented films but that's not the case. All of it depends upon what I like at that time," he added.
Bhandarkar's films have not only helped him carve a niche for himself, they also became turning point in female actresses' career -- be it Tabu in "Chandni Bar" or Priyanka Chopra in "Fashion", both the actresses won National Award for their performances in their respective films.
