Nagesh Kukunoor, whose upcoming film " Laxmi" is on the issue of child prostitution, says he will continue making women-centric films as there are enough filmmakers in Bollywood focussing on male protagonists.
"There are enough tales told with male characters. I genuinely feel that a lot of the attributes regarding women have never been portrayed well in cinema. So many roles have been written for men. But when it comes to women its a sheer numbers game. I think it's virgin territory as there is a lot stuff that could still be told," Kukunoor told .
The director has given some memorable female characters to cinema in his critically acclaimed films like "Dor", "Iqbal", "Hyderabad Blues" and "Rockford".
Kukunoor believes his new film "Laxmi" is hard-hitting as it revolves around the life of a child prostitute. The cast of film includes Shefali Shah and Ram Kapoor with other new faces.
The director has not fixed a date for its release yet. He is currently submitting the film to various film festivals.
He is also exploring the idea of making a road movie.
"Its been something that I have been wanting to do for long time. I have made films in every single genre. Road journey is one such genre that I want to explore and truthfully road movies haven't been explored a lot in India which leaves it wide open to do a whole bunch of them," Kukunoor said.
When asked about his reluctance to work with stars, Kukunoor said, "If the script is large in scope and requires a lot of money then you have to get a big name to justify that, if its not then you can do without them."
The director prefers to call all his movies real-fiction -- where the settings are real but the stories are fictionalised -- believes that he has a had a fair share of telling both 'rural' and 'urban' stories on the celluloid.
On his future plans, Kukunoor said, "I have always said that I will make a film in every genre. There is a big action film left. 'Tasveer' had a little bit of action, a horror film a road movie are also left.
