New Delhi, Mar 12 (ANI): Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin, unlike her co-star Kangana Ranaut, feels that movies are only a reflection of the incidents taking place in the society.
Recently, Kangana had said that it is because of the magnified representation of villains in films that men in real life tend to get inspired and turn to crimes, in response to which the ‘Margarita With a Straw’ actress said it’s not true.
“I am not sure if that’s true, we do have very hero based script writing and hero based industry, but I also think that society is reflection of our cinema and vice-versa. We should also look into the fact that people who write the script are also a part of the society. These people strictly believe in the word heroism. So, it’s like a chicken and egg situation where no one can guess what happened first,” Kalki told ANI.
The actress also said that films can play a part in making the society a safer and a better place to live in, but they cannot be held entirely responsible for it.
Kalki Koechlin, who was present at the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards, performed on her self-written poem ‘The Printing Machine’ at the awards night in Delhi. (ANI)
