Actress Rimi Sen finds Bollywood male-dominated, offering nothing much to heroines, a news report said Wednesday.

"Except, of course, looking good and prancing around trees to woo the male protagonist," said Sen in an interview.

Most films made in Bollywood feature several song-and-dance numbers, often in sweeping outdoor locales where lovers chase each other.

Sen said one way to get around the industry's male domination was to do films with female protagonists.

"But I think I am not ready for it (a female lead role) right now," she said. "I want to work under big banners and have no problems in accepting it (a secondary role)," she said.

Her interview came ahead of the release of her latest movie, Phir Hera Pheri, which focuses on three male characters played by Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suneil Shetty. "They are providing all the fun," Sen said. She said many people only remember her because she looked beautiful in the 2004 hit film Dhoom.
