Real meaning of classics lost in age of selfies: Palekar

In the age of trends like selfies and social networking that are a rage among the youth, words like ‘genius’ and ‘classics’ are being used so rampantly and easily that the real meaning of classics has been lost, veteran actor-filmmaker Amol Palekar said onThursday.

‘We tend to have lost the real meaning of classics. We use these words so rampantly and so easily. Let us not use these terms so very easily because we really want to re-check, re-assess and understand the meaning, see if the meaning applies to it today,’ the Chitchor and Gol Maal actor said at a discussion at the 20th Kolkata International Film Fest.
