It’s time to put an end to item songs

It’s time to put an end to item songs

The adding up of “item songs” in films to spice up things and attract eyeballs continues to find favour, and it’s no surprise that Pakistani producers are following this trend heavily from  Bollywood to fuel the revival of Pakistani cinema.

Item songs have always been a great source of entertainment for movie lovers because the audience loves to watch their favourite actors’ high energy performances.

These item songs garner maximum viewership and are played at every family function; so my question to you all is; why should an actor or film industry be subjected to vulgarism and obencity?

When we can take the story depicted in the movies as fiction and not relate to them, then why is it a problem to accept the songs featured in them as pure entertainment?

If watching a woman dancing in the rain makes you lose control of your senses and you jump on the very first female entity you spot on the road to satisfy yourself, there must be something seriously wrong with you and not the content of the song.

What is required now is that we change our own outlook towards these songs which are nothing but a source of entertainment, and cannot be certified as ‘provocative and suggestive’. Else, their acceptance in the society should be condemned.
