More children films to be made in the country: Amole Gupte

Vastavam web: Amole Gupte wants more children films to be made in the country, but at the same time the director believes there should be a model so that the kids are not exploited in the entertainment industry. Filmmaker Shoojit Sircar recently said that reality television shows which feature children should be banned.Commenting on the issue, Gupte said, “There should be a model so that kids are not misused in the industry and media.”

“I shoot during holidays. The kids come on reality shows, be there for three weeks, become champions, and then they are forgotten, just think how it affects the children?” he told reporters here at a promotional event of his upcoming movie “Sniff”.”In European nations, if an adult film content is consumed at the rate of 100 (per cent) and if there is a children’s film, it rises to 300 to 400 as adults also go with their kids to watch the film.”
