Delhi :  Sonakshi Sinha is all set for her upcoming project "Noor" and is busy with the promotions of the film. In a recent statement, she admits that it's time for people to stop calling movies with a female protagonist as "women centric" as it takes away the essence of the project.

actress Sonakshi feels the gender of the protagonist shouldn't determine the kind of film one is making.

"These headlines that 'Sonakshi is doing a female centric film', it makes no sense. I am an actor, I am doing a film and that's it. Gender doesn't have to come in here."

Sonakshi, who last year appeared as a solo lead in "Akira"and is now gearing up for the release of "Noor", which again stars her in the lead, says films with female protagonist in lead will some day also do the kind of business which a male star's film does.

"We as an audience have very recently opened up to receiving a film with a female protagonist and they have just started doing really well. Filmmakers have just started making a variety of films which perhaps weren't being made earlier.

"There is a difference in that and there will naturally be a difference in box office number as well. Slowly and steadily it will reach a point where we all want to see it and I am glad to be a part of that change," she says.

Directed by Sunhil Sippy, "Noor" is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz's novel Karachi, You're Killing Me!

The film follows journalist Noor's misadventures and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai.
