Juhi Chawla: Cinema is making people insensitive..

New Delhi, July 1 -- Actor Juhi Chawla feels that the trivial treatment of live-in relationships, as well as lovemaking scenes in films, is making people insensitive to such issues.

"If they had become sensitive, I think they should object to more things that are on screen right now. Why are live-in relationships shown to be so casual? Why is making out on screen so casual? I think films are making people quite insensitive to these things," she says.

The 47-year-old, who is married to industrialist Jay Mehta and has two children - Jhanvi, 14 and Arjun, 12, says there aren't many movies she can watch with her children.

"I have kids and I want to take them to the movies, but these days, there are very few movies that I can take them to. There is a certain stuff on screen which I don't want my children to see right now. They can grow up and then deal with this," she says.

Having been in the industry for several years now, with several hit movies to her credit such as Bol Radha Bol (1992), Darr (1993) and Yes Boss (1997), Juhi says she has observed that a few things have reminaed unchanged in Bollywood, through the years.

"I think some things have remained the same. For instance, even in the 90s when I was actively doing films, there used to be just two to three blockbuster movies in a particular year and they used to turn out to be big commercial hits. But there were also those films that would do either good business, become an average grosser or fail at the box office. So, in that way, the dynamics are still the same in the film industry," she says.
