At the fourth edition of the Media & Entertainment business conclave in Chennai, Suhasini made an interesting statement that the new masters of Tamil cinema like Mani Ratnam and Bala make male-centric films whereas directors like Balachander or Bharathi Raja made films which has a very strong female characters.

"One of the reasons why the current generation of filmmakers don’t make films on women-centric themes could be that modern masters like Mani Ratnam and Bala have made a strong impact with male-dominated movies,” she said.
