Jeevitha Rajasekhar attended the trailer launch of a small film titled Degree College, where she criticised its filmmakers for the film’s posters. “Thanks to Arjun Reddy and RX100, Telugu films seldom release without a lip-lock scene. Although romance is a human need, it would be absurd to watch couples getting intimate with each other in public, wouldn’t it? Similarly, in the case of movies, having the entire family with you in the same auditorium while a lip-lock scene is playing on the big screen makes room for awkwardness in an otherwise light-hearted family outing,” she said.  

She added that although public display of affection have become commonplace on social media, filmmakers must do all that they can to uphold the sanctity of our youth. “Many argue that such content is aired on television and is available for streaming on the web, too. However, I don’t consider that a valid argument. As filmmakers, we need to be more responsible,” Jeevitha opined. The former actor, who is now a Censor Board member, explained to those present at the event how censorship has become a challenging affair these days. “Almost every time we ask filmmakers to cut a scene from the film, they take their objection to the court,” she said.

 

“As a mother of two daughters, I request filmmakers to make more decent films,” Jeevitha pleaded to the fraternity. She then humbly apologized to the filmmakers present there for commenting on the upcoming film at its own function.
