"'Who is it that slots you?' It is the industry, and who is the industry? It's the makers, right? So, they have to be able to break it, they have to give that chance to actors and say, 'Oh! This actress is fearless and she says that I am 20, but I will play 40 or I'm 30, but will play 65, so give them something of value," said the actress. Shefali is now also happy to see more women-centric movies on the big screen, and feels the times for actresses is "changing". "As far as actresses are concerned, I'm extremely happy that it is changing...it has changed with 'Mary Kom', 'Piku', 'NH10', 'Queen' and 'Tanu Weds Manu'," she said.
Shefali, whose performance in critically acclaimed films like "Satya“, "Gandhi, My Father" and "The Last Lear" has been lauded, will be next seen in Karan Malhotra's "Brothers" doing a guest appearance. She will play a character named Maria Fernandes. She said it's a "a guest appearance", however, "according to me, it is the emotional connect, the emotional backbone of the film."
