She has now raised questions about the very evident sexism in Bollywood. While we see male actors romancing heroines who are much younger to them, it is not common for older actresses to star opposite these superstars.

During an interview with Pinkvilla, Neena said, “Meri badi iccha hai ke woh daur aa jaye jahan main Hrithik Roshan ke against kaam karu. Against nahi opposite. (I really wish that the time comes when I can work opposite Hrithik Roshan). But why can’t I be opposite Shah Rukh Khan or Hrithik Roshan? I’m not saying, Ranbir Kapoor. Main itni bi bewakoof nahi hu (I am not that stupid). Lekin, they work with actresses who are like 20-25 years younger than them na as heroines.” She further added, “I can romance Ranbir also (laughs). But hamari country mein bahut time lagega (But, in our country it will take time).”
