Aamir Expresses Feelings about Content for Children in Films

News

Mumbai, March 26: In a FICCI event on Wednesday, Aamir Khan was seen speaking his heart out which was a treat for the audience. Known for his straight forward nature, Aamir Khan apologised in front of the world for not being by Kamal Hassan's side when his "Vishwaroopam" created a controversy and led to a ban in 2013.

"I really feel ashamed that at that time I was lost in my work but as an industry that was the time we had to come together. I apologise to you (Kamal Hassan) publicly that I wasn't there at that time. I feel bad that we weren't there with you. Banning a film is not right. Once the film has received the certification, it is the responsibility of the state to make sure that people can watch the film without any fear." Aamir Khan

"I am totally against banning any kind of material. When the I&B minister spoke to us, he also clarified that actually the ministry has no such list of cuss words. It's a certification board and not the censor board. It was nice to hear that." he said.

The star also feels that there should be change in children content as what they see is mostly not meant for them.

"When I see the content that children watch, it scares me. 80% kids are not watching children’s content. They are watching content which their parents are watching." he said.

"We are very modern in terms of technology; we have the latest mobile phones and cars. But if you look at the matrimonial columns, you will realise that we have not moved an inch." he added.
