This might sound a bit chauvinistic but truth remains that from its inception, the entertainment industry has been a male bastion. Though there is a sizeable presence of females, they have been used as props for glamour and beauty but not in positions of power. However, the times are changing slowly.
A closer look at the segment of producers in Tollywood is an example. From the past few years, Supriya from the Akkineni camp has been playing a key role in the production activities of Annapurna Studios banner. She has acted in one movie and then moved on to production. Some of the key decisions are taken by her now.
Similarly, the young and beautiful Niharika is doing her bit in production from the Konidela camp. Though she has every quality to become an actress, Niharika seems to be quite happy with the production portfolio. Sources say even her camp is encouraging her to get into that side. Not to forget, there is Lakshmi Manchu from the Manchu family who has her own share of production ventures. This is indeed a good sign of progress.
