The Indian film industry has been a male dominated area for years but that seems to be changing now. With more women stepping up into the areas of direction, production and other fields, they are finally making their mark. One among then is producer Mansi Bagla. Her films include Forensic starring Vikrant Massey and Radhika Apte and Sirf Ek Friday with debutant Avitesh Shrivastava, Aadesh Shrivastava's son.
Veteran Bollywood filmmaker Subhash Ghai is all praises for her saying, “I always respect and admire those women who enter into film and tv productions with so much passion and love for cinema and its arts n crafts. This is what I found in Mansi Bagla, a passionate producer I met. I wish her the best of success with my blessings.”
Director Vishal Furia said, “I have seen some great inner strength and confidence in her when she makes her unconventional choices and decisions. She goes by her instinct a lot, be it for people or projects.” Antim Director Mahesh Manjrekar said, “Mansi is full of life and enthusiasm and I love how passionate she is towards filmmaking. I am happy to be working with her in Sirf Ek Friday, she knows what she wants and how she wants it and that's a rare quality.” On receiving praises a thrilled Mansi added, “Movie-making is like a game of chess, all pieces have their different skills but all play a crucial role to win- pawns, rook, bishop, and the knight. Your team has to be sharp and everyone needs to play their part well. Movie making is a team game and I’m happy to anchor this team. This is my passion and I will see it through.”
