'Commerce often overrides logic': Sharmila
During the interaction, Sharmila stated that content that is being offered on television today is regressive.
She went on to say that most TV serials show women as women's worst enemies and that it is a very unfortunate narrative. "The government does keep a tab on this, and then it finally comes to us."
Sharmila went on to say that there are times when actors ask makers to tweak or remove certain objectionable scenes and segments from a show, but the producers straightaway refuse to comply.
"Producers mostly refuse to budge as commerce often overrides logic," she stated.

You don’t have to be at the pinnacle of your career – but at every stage, if you can speak up and make your presence felt, that’s what makes the difference," she said.
