Speaking about how times have changed for women in India over the years, the actress spoke positively. Konkona said, "A lot of us today take granted what women have gone through in the last 100 years. Earlier women were not allowed to vote, not allowed to own property either. But now all that is allowed, we don't even think of those things, we have come a long way."
In her upcoming film, Konkona Sen Sharma plays a mother of three. "My character's name is Shireen Aslam, she has three children. She manages her household and her life as per the expectations from her. She has certain restrictions which she accepts but she also has certain desires which she wants to fulfill but she has to work around the loopholes and find some innovative ways to accomplish the small dreams and side by side fulfilling so many roles," Konkona said.
