Saurabh Shukla defends adult content in films
Mumbai: Noted actor-director Saurabh Shukla has come out in defence of adult content in films these days and says that everything has a motive behind it.
"People say that there is abusive language in the film so it is a vulgar film. But it`s not like that. Look at the real motive behind it," Saurabh said on the sets of his new film "Love Kiya Aur Lagg Gayi".
"You will not call Michelangelo`s paintings porn paintings. But there is nudity in them and there is nudity in porn. But the meaning behind the two is different," Saurabh said adding that the censor board gives certificates and if a film is certified an adult film, "don`t go with your family, simple".
"Delhi Belly", "Pyaar Ka Punchnama" and lately "Kya Super Kool Hain Hum" were some of the comedies that were laden with heavy dose of abuses while "Jism 2", "Jannat 2" and "Hate Story" were high on sexual content.
Saurabh, who has directed films like "Raat Gayi Baat Gayi" and "Pappu Can`t Dance Saala," has put direction on the backburner for now.
"I am not directing anything right now because I am concentrating on my acting assignments. But soon a film directed by me will be out, `I M 24`," Saurabh said.
"I M 24" stars Rajat Kapoor, Neha Dhupia, Lillete Dubey and Manjari Fadnis and Saurabh himself.
Talking about his upcoming assignments, Saurabh said: "I have been busy completing my acting assignments and `Barfi` is one of my films which you will get to see in September. I have a great role in it."
"After that, there is Subhash Kapoor`s film `Jolly L.L.B.`, who made `Phas Gaye Re Obama`. So, I am only concentrating on writing and when I get free from my acting assignments, then I`ll turn to direction again," he added.
