Movies donít offer solutions to social problems: Raj Babbar
18.22 IST   08th Feb 2003

By IndiaExpress Bureau

Bollywood actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar rued the contribution of Indian film industry in solving the problems plaguing the society at a function to promote his home production movie.

Raj Babbar, who was talking to reporters at a multiplex theatre in Ahmedabad as a promotional campaign for his daughter Juhiís debut film Kash... Aap Hamare Hote, said that Indian film industry was not a solution provider to the problems plaguing the society but was only mirroring them.

ďIndian films are only depicting the day-to-day happenings in the society and not offering solutions to problems,Ē he said.

Talking about his own home production, a love story in the backdrop of illegal migration, he said Juhi and her co-star singer-cum-actor Sonu Nigam had worked very hard in the film. Juhi has acted in several plays in Mumbai

Babbar said that although 85 percent of the film had been shot in Canada, care has been taken to incorporate traditional Indian values in the story.
