All films need not have social message: Tashu Kaushik

Chennai, July 17 : Tashu Kaushik, busy wrapping up Telugu political drama "Reporter", about the state of journalism in the country, feels all films need not address a social issue because people watch movies for entertainment.

"I personally feel all films need not address a social issue. Audiences come to watch movies for entertainment. I'm sure nobody would like to be lectured for hours on some sensitive subject. As a cinema lover, I personally like entertaining films," Tashu told IANS.

"I'm fine if once in a while a film comes along with a social message. But such films should address these subjects subtly without making it preachy. Even a film like 'Rang De Basanti' earned criticism from a small section of the audience for its debatable climax," she said.

In "Reporter", Tashu is paired opposite Ramkee. The film is being directed by Mahesh Katti.

"We've tried to present journalism from a different point of view. Our effort is to prove that pen is really mightier than sword," Tashu added.
