Jaya Bachchan: Adapting movies from literature is a wonderful trend
Veteran actress Jaya Bachchan said it’s a ‘wonderful’ trend in Indian cinema that filmmakers are going for subjects based on published literature and said this augurs well for women in cinema.
“I think a new trend that has started is that people have started taking subjects from published literature in our country, Indian literature or even others (like William Shakespeare’s works).
“That’s a wonderful trend because once we go back to literature, we will naturally go back to a lot of things that should be done the way it should be done,” she said at a special session of the Kolkata Literary Meet here Sunday evening.
Jaya also appreciated the different genres of cinema that have come up.
“I am hopeful. We are looking at different kinds of cinema,” she said in response to the progress of women in cinema.
