Neha Sharma says she is not a feminist, welcomes better opportunities

Q. Among the many roles you portrayed, which has been the closest to your heart?

A. I haven't enacted anything that's very close to me, to be honest. I am hoping somebody makes a film where I can play myself.

Q. Do you think you are treated differently in this industry because of your gender?

A. There is a certain kind of discrimination between a man and a woman in terms of the salary system. If you look at the kind of films that were made earlier, they were all male-dominated and male-centric. But, now things are changing. We have seen many interesting stories about women, be it Kahaani, Kahaani 2, Queen and many more... So, I guess things are changing. It is difficult being a woman because the opportunities probably are not so many. Earlier there was a fear that since you are a woman, you might not really be offered a meaty role or your role will be limited to just being a glamorous presence. But now times are changing and better opportunities are coming our way.

Q. What do you love about being a woman?

A. I love everything about being a woman. I wouldn't change that for a thing. If I am to be born again I want to be born a woman, because there are lots of things that amaze me about the woman.
