Mumbai, Feb 14: Filmmaker Farah Khan believes that films should not be preachy, but adds that a filmmaker should ensure that his or her film is not sending out wrong kind of messages.



"The movies, instead of having a preachy message, should show you the right principles without preaching or without making it on that message.

So, if there is a movie, make sure that the women are not depicted terribly or horribly in it," the 48-year-old said at a Special Rally by P&G Shiksha for School Children.

"It may be entertaining, it could be fun to watch, it could have song and dance but it should not send out sub-consciously a wrong message into the audience. I think that is the responsibility of every filmmaker," she added.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Arbaaz Khan, who made his debut as director with Dabangg 2 last year, sees films as pure entertainers.

"I personally believe that movies are predominately for entertainment and if you can encapsulate a message and lace it very sweetly, then fine," he said.

Arbaaz was also present at the event.

"But I think there are other platforms where a message has to be given very strongly. Let's keep movies purely for entertainment," he added.
