Film cameras show women on screen as sex objects: Azmi

Veteran film star Shabana Azmi said Saturday her family and the way she was brought up influenced her selection of movies across all genres.

The five-time National Award winner was in the Kerala capital as the chief guest for the 18th International Film Festival of Kerala that got underway Friday night.

Addressing reporters here on Saturday, Azmi expressed happiness over the role of the film festival in bringing together great pieces of art from all over the world.

She said she was happy over the huge participation of the audience. ‘My family and the way in which I was bought up influenced my selection of movies across all genres,’ Azmi said.

Making a comparison of directors, Azmi said she has trust and faith on the upcoming directors as they were reflecting reality based on what they have seen and experienced in life in cities.

While expressing happiness that many women were now part of film making, Azmi reserved her views on celebration of women’s sexuality in movies. ‘At present, film cameras are being used as an instrument of making women an object of sexuality,’ she said.
