Most filmmakers feel there is a shortage of girls in the industry. Recently when filmmakers like Imtiaz Ali, Vikramaditya Motwane, Rohan Sippy and Vipul Shah among others had got together at the Mid-day office to discuss things they wished were a part of the industry, Motwane had quipped, "There's a real shortage of girls in the industry today." To which Imtiaz had added, "Every time, one of us starts making a movie, we begin to look for girls who can act and you inevitably see that there's really nobody."

Get ready for some lulz! Interview with Irrfan.
You played villain in Spiderman 3. Do you think Indian filmmakers are wary of casting you as the negative lead in a superhero film?
Bollywood and Hollywood work differently. I have different positions in these two different industries. The decisions I take in the West, I wouldn’t take here. You cannot compare them. I won’t play villain in a Bollywood superhero film even if there were offers. Spiderman was something we have been hearing about since childhood. So you have a different association and keenness towards it.
Let me translate the Irrfan-eze for you: Unless Rakesh Roshan is going to pay me Hollywood cash PLUS get me access to all the additional opportunities to schmooze with Hollywood celebs and make me feel important by having white people fawn all over me as the Top Actor in India, you won't be seeing me in Krrish 4.
