Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor, who has worked in many female-centric films like ‘Beta’, ‘Lajja’, ‘Judaai’ and ‘Biwi No. 1’, says most actors today do not like being a part of films that revolve around women.

"I see leading men are not very happy being part of a woman-oriented film. I think (they are) the best films ever made in our country, including `Mother India`, which was a female-centric film and is remembered till date," the 52-year-old actor said here at the Lavasa Women`s Drive.

Anil also says that he is proud of his association with female-centric films.

"I have worked in a lot of women-oriented films and I have been very proud and honoured and I had such a great time working in films which were women-oriented. I think leading men should support and encourage women-oriented films," said Anil, a few days ahead of the International Women`s Day Thursday.

Anil was recently seen in a cameo appearance in Tom Cruise`s ‘Mission Impossible-Ghost Protocol’. He is currently working in ‘Tezz’, ‘Race 2’ and ‘Shootout at Wadala’.
