Films shouldn’t send out wrong message, feels Farah

But adds that a filmmaker should ensure that his or her film is not sending out wrong kind of messages.

‘The movies, instead of having a preachy message, should show you the right principles without preaching or without making it on that message. So, if there is a movie, make sure that the women are not depicted terribly or horribly in it,’ the 48-year-old said here Tuesday.

‘It may be entertaining, it could be fun to watch, it could have song and dance but it should not send out subconsciously a wrong message to the audience. I think that is the responsibility of every filmmaker,’ she added.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Arbaaz Khan, who made his debut as director with Dabangg 2 last year, sees films as pure entertainers.

‘I personally believe that movies are predominately for entertainment and if you can encapsulate a message and lace it very sweetly, then fine,’ he said.

Arbaaz was also present at the event.

‘But I think there are other platforms where a message has to be given very strongly. Let’s keep movies purely for entertainment,’ he added.
