Kalamandalam Gopi on woman doing female characters

Women doing female characters may not become as successful as men doing it. There is a difference in film and Kathakali. Close interaction between male and female artistes on stage may be embarrassing. I don’t say that women can not perform like men in Kathakali. But I think they may not continue in this field for longer span of time, like men for several reasons.
