'TV should take up drug abuse related shows'

Monday, June 27, 2016

Social issues like child marriage and female foeticide have lately become one of the favourite plots for Indian television and actress Mandira Bedi now wants the small screen to deal with a subject of drug abuse.

Mandira, who has been a part of TV industry for over two decades said, "Television should be a mirror to our society, as it is close to people and has more reach. It is the duty of television to put out content that gives you an indication of 'what is' rather than 'what is not'."

The actress was speaking at the 'Say No To Drugs' run organised by Femina in association with Narcotics Control Bureau and Mumbai Police on the occasion of World Drug Day. The 44-year-old feels proud to have come on board for the initiative and says there is a strong need to educate people regarding drug menace. "The menace is affecting the youth of the country on a very large level. We need to come out and do our bit by educating people and informing about the consequences.''

"I saw "Udta Punjab" and it was quiet disturbing. It taught me a lot about what I didn't know, and I was ignorant as to how bad the situation is. Any kind of cinema which takes you out of your comfort zone and makes you think is actually a good piece of cinema.''
