Hamza Ali Abbasi has always something to say about the topics that are making round over social media. Be it politics or social issues, Abbasi always finds time to discuss about anything and everything, landing himself into colorful controversies.
Few month back Hamza shared his stance on using item numbers to sell movies and Now, Bollywood director Karan Johar has shared his thoughts and confessed that he has made a mistake by using women’s sexuality to sell films.
“The moment you put a woman in the center and a thousand men looking at her lustingly, it’s setting the wrong example. As a filmmaker, I have made those mistakes and I will never do it again,” said Johar
With Johar’s quote, Hamza captioned the image, “When I spoke against item numbers, our desi modernities lashed at me, calling me a wannabe Mullah. Now, I hope at least this guy’s views will help explain why it’s not okay to use a woman’s sex appeal to sell films. Hope we can focus on art and reject shameful trends like item numbers.”
