Actress Indhuja Ravichandran, who has come in for praise for her work in the recently released film, Mercury, says that the Tamil film industry is a place which respects talent, art and artistes.

The actress first shot to fame for her performance in Meyaadha Maan (2017) and feels that the situation in the Tamil film industry is improving for women.

Female artistes from the Hindi, Telegu and Malayalam film industries have been raising their voices against casting couch and sexual harassment. However, Indhuja feels the Tamil film industry is changing for the better.

When asked what she thought of the situation in the Tamil film industry, the actress said, "The Tamil film industry has changed and it has changed for the better. What you are speaking might have been the case earlier, but then, things have changed. In fact, the industry is still changing. People respect talent, art and artistes here."

The actress, who has at least five films in her kitty, also admits that she is likely to be a part of the yet untitled Karthik Subbaraj film, which will feature actor Rajinikanth as the main lead and star Vijay Sethupathi as the villain.
