Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Prashant Narayanan favour ban on item songs
Mumbai: Actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Prashant Narayanan support the Central Board of Film Certification`s (CBFC) decision to be more stringent about the content of item songs which go on TV. The two feel that raunchy numbers can impact children and banning such songs won`t take too much away from a movie.
Prashant, who has been part of intense and bold films like ‘Bhindi Baazaar’ and ‘Murder 2’, respectively, says it is good that a "non-crucial part of a film" would be banned.
"If people have to sell their films by showing the item songs only, then it is good that they are banning it. I feel something which is not a crucial part of the film and is used as a marketing strategy to sell a film should not be shown on TV," Prashant said here in an interview.
The censor board decided to tighten its standards for item songs and other similar category videos after a number of complaints regarding the quality of content on a public platform like TV came in, following the Delhi gangrape incident.
Nawazuddin feels such songs are having a negative impact on children and, therefore, it is a good step by CBFC.
"This ban on item songs is very necessary. If you say that TV is a family entertainer, then there are kids as well in a family and don`t learn anything other than this," the 39-year-old said here in an interview.
"The entire day they only watch such songs and dances and then they react in a similar manner. So I am feeling good about it (the measures)," added the actor who wowed everyone with his performances in ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ and ‘Kahaani’.
