Amyra considers herself as a feminist
Mumbai: Actor Amyra Dastur, who has worked with female directors like Sonam Nair and Leena Yadav, says she considers herself a feminist.
"I do consider myself a feminist. I've been independent since the age of 16 and I believe that if women want to grow and reach higher levels, we will have to not only support one another but also really help each other," said Amyra, who debuted in Bollywood with film Issaq.
"My mother is one of the strongest women I know. She's taken care of me and my brother and dealt with a lot emotionally."
"She went back to work and started her own successful business after 21 years because both my brother and I started working.," she added.
She shared that she will always be someone who "believes in the talent and sharpness a female director brings to the table". Gender, clearly, doesn't matter to her.
