From managing a house to child rearing and nurturing entire families or going to work, women can accomplish much more than we realise.
But the society fails to give them the status they deserve. This idea also reflects in the kind of movies I have made. Be it ‘Nila Mastrani’ or ‘Tumaku Ta Paruni Bhuli’, ‘Kebe Tame Naha Kebe Mun Nahi’ or ‘Meemansa’, all have female- dominated characters in the lead.His latest directed film was Meemansha produced by Soumya Ranjan Pattnaik under the banner of Manjari Movies.Leepi adjudged as Best actress for her performance in this movie in last year Odisha state film award
