Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has said that, if there are crimes against women why not ban Ajanta-Ellora and ban Kamasutra. She was speaking in reference to the ‘art’ that provokes various types of crimes against women.
She further added that only the cinema should not be and cannot be blamed for the rising crimes in the society against women. According to Priyanka the Hindi films are meant for pure entertainment. That is why she asked the question if it were the film that increased the crimes, it was also necessary to shut down Ajanta-Ellora as well as the Kamasutra.
Sculpting is an art, Priyanka said. And further argued that if there is an “A” certificate to the film, why are children allowed to go to such films?
There is no doubt, some logic behind Priyanka’s arguments. However, it remains to be seen how much response she gets to her points of view.
