It Isn’t Just A Female-centric Movie

Even though Parvathy’s role is the central protagonist and Tovino only features as supporting roles, the actor thinks that we should never tag a film a ‘'female-centric’ one. If we consider gender equality something normal, it shouldn’t be used as a description or statement.
