    Not only acting profession but I think also women are not supposed to work out side home. Biologically God has not made them for working outside home. I am not against the development of women. I am not talking about the rights of women. They should be well educated. They should be well aware of the surrounding situations. But their work is different. They meant for the greater respect than the respect our current intellectuals conceive for them. Coming to office , receiving the commands from various bosses, being a commodity of entertainment by the colleague in workplace are certain things can not be considered in a good way for them. Particularly in country like India where work is not sufficient for all the male candidates then requirement for women should not arise barring certain field where rich talent is only required.
