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 the 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,” says the 48-year-old.

“It may be entertaining, it could be fun to watch, it could have song and dance, but it should not send out subconsciously a wrong message to the audience. I think that is the responsibility of every filmmaker,” she adds.
