Films responsible for crimes against women, says Maneka Gandhi

The Union Minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi has said that movies are the reason for rising crimes against women in the country.

Gandhi said that movies show eveteasing to be romantic and part of all relationships. This leads to a wrong impression in the minds of the audience and they repeat the same behavior.

Gandhi has asked the film industry to change the way women are shown in movies, to show them as people worthy of respect. The minister feels that women are represented indecently in both Bollywood and regional movies.
