Women's Week Special: Film

As International Women's Day rolls in, Platform shines the spotlight at all the women from across the country who inspire us with their sheer zeal. Change makers in their own fields, their impetus is un-breachable as they redefine what being a woman is all about.

Kalki Koechlin

In 2009, Dev D gave us a girl who would soon take over the entire country, for the right reasons. As movies like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Margharita with a Straw defined her prowess, she proves that she's here for a reason, and more importantly, that she's here to stay. Between writing and directing plays and juggling her life as an actor she shows us how to multitask, and how to do it right. 

Zoya Akhtar 
Zoya Akhtar has single-handedly redefined Indian cinema, reaching deep into the gut of elemental bonds like friendship and love, painting them in a new light. Whether its friends on a road trip, or a family coming undone on a vacation; her work reflects her zeal to pursue the simplest of ideas, and find the most extraordinary details in them. A woman in charge, her dexterity at work makes her a force to reckon with. 

Priyanka Chopra

With Quantico and her latest Oscar appearance taking over our social media feed, it's no surprise why we need to talk about Priyanka Chopra. Right from her very first days in the industry, Priyanka has been on fire. The Desi Girl who stole hearts on foreign shores is an inspiring example of all the things a woman can achieve, only if she puts her mind to it.
