Veteran writer and filmmaker Gulzar says that cinema is not a bible that teaches human beings to be better human beings. It is a mirror that shows its ax to society. This was stated by Gulzar during the release of Bhawani Aiyar's first novel 'Anon' in Mumbai. #MeToo Movement has started in India after Tanushree Datta accuses actor Nana Patekar of sexual harassment.
On this movement Gulzar said, "Cinema is a reflection of society. If we say that harassment of a woman or child is happening in the cinema then I do not think so. It is spread throughout the society. On one side in the society where cases of sexual harassment are coming up with four and eight year old girls. In such a way, thank God that the cinema has not kept that mirror in front of the people. "
He said, "But be careful, the cinema has started reflecting every part of your life." He said that cinema can not teach people to be good people. He said, "It is not that cinema will teach us good values and ethics. The cinema is not for this. If you are thinking that cinema is like a Bible that teaches you to be a good person, then you are wrong. "
