New Delhi, Jan. 3 -- Even though there are so many women-centric films being helmed nowadays, actor-producer Dia Mirza feels there needs to be experimentation in this field too.

The 33-year old, who has produced films like Bobby Jasoos and Love Breakups Zindagi, feels that there's a long way to go as far as the portrayal of women in films goes. "Are we going to take references from what we have seen and keep churning out the same kind of women characters in our films or are we going to start making a new reference to how society is evolving, and evolve our characters with the times," asks Dia.

The actor feels that filmmaking is a great way to help change the way society thinks and looks at women. "We are living in a world where filmmaking can be used as a craft to reach out to people. When I talk about social context and relevance in films, it is not to propagate a particular thought, it is to reflect a cultural ethos which we identify with or want to see," says Dia.

She adds that this new reflection of women in films will be liked by society. "When your story is compelling and entertaining, it will resonate with the audience," she says.
