Sneha Wagh Wants To See Shows Focussing On Powerful Women Characters

Actress Sneha Wagh says that there is a necessity to air shows with influential females characters. Sneha, who stars in the in show Jyoti, says, “Initially I didn’t think of the show in a very different way. I signed it because of the opportunity but as the show went on, I realised how important it is to portray women in powerful characters and share actual everyday stories rather than only showing rich families who are always decked up in good clothes and heavy jewellery. There is a need to air shows where women are powerful. We have a patriarchal society and will continue to be so unless we change that mindset.” “After doing ‘Jyoti’, I consciously did roles that played a very important part in the story. Even when I was offered to play a mother, I made sure that the character had a very big impact on the protagonist’s life. I think this was my way of telling women that even they are strong and that was my way of giving back to society,”
