Apparently on being honoured for the success of the operation in Abbotabad, Pakistan, by US Navy Seals, the lady in question was rather upset that her colleagues, who were hurdles rather than any help, had been included in the honour! And she let them know it too when she sent a reply on a group mail stating the same. The lady remains under cover for obvious reasons, but a final nod of approval from the Academy for Best Actress, may just change that. At any rate, it will hopefully result in more Sheros (female heroes in cinema).
The second Shero of the said film would have to be the director Kathryn Bigelow, who has made quite a mark in the male zone that war films are. Among those doffing their hats to the director was our very own Ram Gopal Varma, who hailed her as even more talented than her much celebrated ex-husband James Cameron! Closer home in India, actresses and women directors — Priyanka Chopra as Susanna in Saat Khoon Maaf or Seema Biswas in Bandit Queen among others — are not doing too badly, though we have yet to see a heroine kick ass in a war film. The biopic on Mary Kom with Priyanka Chopra in the title role promises a good start.
