Mumbai, March 17: While CBFC chairman Pahlaj Nihalani is facing ire from the film fraternity over his diktats regarding cuss words in movies, veteran actor and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha wonders why use of abuses has become a trend in present-day cinema. Shatrughan, who played the badman memorably in many films in the 1970s, is opposed the use of abusive language or violence against women — in movies or otherwise. “I can’t understand why we need to have ‘gaalis’ (abuses) for the villain to get taalis (applause). In my entire career as a villain, which lasted for a good ten years, I never used one expletive or one cuss word. I was very sure about my priorities,” Shatrughan said. “Bura banunga lekin bura hin bolunga. Auraton ko kabhi zaleel hin karunga (I would play a bad man, but I would not use bad words, and insult women).” (IANS)
