Himani Shivpuri is one of the veteran actresses who has worked on Television as well as films and has done Theatre too. Having explored and experienced every medium, she still feels that women are not given enough portrayal on Television as compared to men.

While talking to a leading daily she was quoted saying as "Unfortunately, our industry has still not moved out from that 'sati-savitri' zone. We should create more shades for our women in TV space than just giving them those typical roles."

"It is good that in our TV industry, stories revolve around female characters more than male characters but there should be no sex war. A story should be good and characters should be well-rounded. There should be equality" she added.

She said that films like Padmaavat, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has paved way for female actresses to showcase their power, but on Television there is less scope for an actress to do the same. "So, more strong roles for women should be made on TV too."

Himani is currently doing &TV's show "Happu Ki Ultan Paltan".
