Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra can get big openings for their films

Filmmaker Pan Nalin feels in today’s times stars like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra can have a huge box opening of their films solely on their own merit.
Nalin, who recently made female-buddy-drama “Angry Indian Goddesses”, feels the “Bajirao Mastani” co-stars don’t need a male star to deliver a film.
When asked if he would have cast any of the leading Bollywood actress, Nalin told PTI, “We would’ve loved to bring in talented important stars too, but it would have been difficult. I believe Deepika and Priyanka, both are amazingly talented. They can open a film alone on their own merit. They don’t need a man to do that.”
The filmmaker, however, believes people cannot just venture out with an agenda to make a “woman-centric” film.
“…you cannot venture out to make a woman-centric film alone, that would be a failure. You can have a central woman character with a beautiful, sensible well-crafted story around it,” he said.
