Taking to Instagram, Rhea wrote, "What the f**k is a 'woman-centric' film? Can someone tell me? Can someone announce a 'man-centric' one soon? or is that just a given?" She further went on to add, "I'm not interested in making 'woman-centric' films. My films just happen to have women in them. I think they are braver and more fun. Also heroes are just too sensitive and emotional. Too much chik-chik. Na?"
On Instagram, one person reacted to the post and wrote, “We need more filmmakers like her!! More women in film industry need to speak up.” Another one wrote, “Sorry Sonam-centric films autocorrect ho gaya.” Questioning Rhea, one said, “@rheakapoor Haven't you made women centric only so far.”
In a 2016 interview with Mumbai Mirror, Rhea had said that she is comfortable in making films around ‘young women’. “It's a genre I enjoy working with. I want to do other things as well but this is my comfort zone. There's not much for young girls to watch and relate to in Hindi films,“ she said.
