Leena Yadav… Audience should take a stand to watch films at a theatre.

The Adil Hussain and Radhika Apte-starrer Parched was in the news for different reasons and Director Leena Yadav has opened up about leaked intimate scenes between the two stars in her forthcoming movie.

“People have a tendency to sensationalise things… I think it should be stopped now. By exaggerating it, we are giving much importance to these things. I didn’t say anything so far as it would be against the film that I’ve made,” said Yadav at the trailer launch of the film.

“If some people are excited about leaking a sex scene from the film, that is absolutely against what I have made. I think we should ignore,” she added.

Yadav also shared that piracy is a worldwide reality and one has to accept that.

“In this situation, it is the audience’s responsibility not to support piracy. We, the filmmakers, are often asked about our stand. It’s the audience who should take a stand to watch films at a theatre otherwise there won’t be cinema anymore,” she said.

“Parched” highlights the way society sees a widow and a sex-worker, and also touches upon marital rape.

She said: “We can’t claim to change the society through a film, but at least there is a possibility of discussion. I would request the audience to watch, discuss, whether you agree or disagree and at least bring things out because discussion of problems affecting society is important.” – CINEWS
