Elaborating on his words, Vikram explained that many a time, women actors were seen in films with big stars doing 'one or two songs'. In his words, when a heroine decides to take on a film on her own shoulders, she takes responsibility for 'the success or failure of the film' and this is exactly who Bipsaha was.

Vikram explained that he didn't see women and men any different and that he felt all characters were genderless.
