People have been calling Manmarziyaan a woman-oriented film, however, when asked if he agrees, Abhishek refused to acknowledge it as one.

“I am against this whole thing of ‘women-oriented films’,” the actor replied in a recent interview.  “I think it is a wonderful story of three individuals. What I like about the film is especially the ladies are going to appreciate the perspective that Anurag has taken in the film. He has not judged anybody. Especially women in our society have become so used to being judged for everything and what’s wonderful about this film is that here the girl is wild at heart, is free and neither of her two loves ever judge her or ask her to change. They just love her for what she is. That I think is a very empowering thing for a woman to see,” he explained.
