New Delhi, Mar 11 (ANI): Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin has opined that movies cannot be solely held responsible for bringing about a change in the society.

The ‘Margarita With A Straw’ actress, who was present at the launch of a youth-led program ‘Campus Ambassador Program; Making Delhi City Safer,’ said that the films can take the society to a better and safer place, but cannot do it all alone.

“There are movies, which are artistic. Such movies have the capacity to bring about a change, but there are movies, which are completely commercial and made for people’s leisure time, which is not at all wrong to have. So, I don’t think that the motive or the responsibility of taking the society to a better and safer place should be only on the shoulders of the film makers or movies,” said Kalki to ANI.
