Mumbai: Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty has said that Bollywood industry should give equal importance to women in every other working sector in the country.

On Tuesday, an 18-member panel, including Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Ajay Devgn, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Ritesh Sidhwani and CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, met the Prime Minister to discuss how to take the entertainment industry to the next stage.

Recently, Dia Mirza expressed her displeasure on Twitter asking the reason for women's absence from the Bollywood delegation of producers and actors that recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss issues faced by the film industry.

Shetty agreed with Mirza, saying "Absolutely... I feel when you are giving importance to women in every other sector then, we should give them equal importance in film industry as well.

"I think their meeting with Prime Minister Modi was impromptu that is why there wasn't inclusion of a female member from film industry. But I am sure that wasn't their conscious decision."
