Filmmakers should be responsible in depiction of women: Shabana Azmi

Veteran actor and activist Shabana Azmi has criticised the item numbers culture in Bollywood and said that they lead to the sexualisation of children. Citing the lyrics of the song Fevicol Se picturised on Kareena Kapoor in Salman Khan-starrer Dabangg 2, Azmi said, “Please be informed, when you say ‘main tandoori murgi hu, gatka lo mujhe alcohol kay saath’ and a four-year-old girl is dancing on it, you are leading to the sexualisation of children and the parents who are enjoying it, people who are encouraging her are just as responsible.”
