Mumbai: Actress Sharmin Segal, who will be making her debut with the movie "Malal" opened up on several topics including Bollywood, gender equality and nude scenes on-screen during an interview.

"As an actress I have so much to explore that I cannot limit myself. Having said that, as of now, I would not be able to do a sex scene or a nude scene on-screen," Segal said during an interview to IANS.

She added: "I am yet to develop that body confidence to perform such a scene. I think whether you are a boy or a girl, you look bad on the screen if you are not confident and convinced in your head about what you are performing, what you are portraying."

Shermin made her debut in Bollywood with "Malaal" alongside debutant Meezaan. The film is produced by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Though she does not find it wrong to look glamorous on-screen which is expected in commercial films, Sharmin dislikes the parameters set by society based on gender.

She said: "I hate about so-called expectation, when someone points out that you shouldn't be doing this because you are a girl. We are always told that we should not be abusive, we should not burp or fart or not sit in a certain way in public, because we are girls."

Sharmin added: "My point is, all these things are natural or wrong, but that should be applied either for both or for none. Using abusive words either should be bad for both of us, boys and girls, or for none. Why is it ok for a boy to abuse and not for a girl? I am saying, if an act is wrong, it is wrong."

"And that judgement should not be depending on gender, " she added.
