Actress Kareena Kapoor is perplexed over the hype generated on the film “PK”, uproar over “AIB Roast” show and the censor board ban on cuss words.
Questioning why cinema is being targeted when there are much bigger issues to tackle in India, she said:
“I don’t know why are we after cinema. There are greater problems that we need to change first in Indian society.”
In an interview with the IANS, she said the mindset of people needs to change to overcome hurdles in society.
Aamir Khan starrer “PK” faced protests from various sections of society alleging that the movie hurt their religious sentiments, whereas the “AIB Roast” show faced flak for its obscene and vulgar content.
Central Board of Film Certification chairperson Pankaj Nihalani has issued a controversial diktat blacklisting ‘offensive’ words from Indian films, shocking members of the film fraternity.
The actress, who spoke to IANS after launching Magnum ice-cream here, said: “There are graver issues to focus on like illiteracy and poverty around us rather than discussing AIB or what should we do in films. Thinking of Indians needs to be changed and that will only happen when we solve issues like illiteracy and poverty.”
On the professional front, Kareena Kapoor will be seen with Salman Khan in the upcoming film “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” and will leave for Amritsar to shoot for her film “Udta Punjab” next month.
