Actress Sonam Kapoor who recently attended the “Fight Malnutrition in the country” in association with “Fight Hunger Foundation & ACF” said that people in India love entertaining films like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo because it helps them forget their problems like poverty.
Sonam said,“Any art is a great platform to inspire people to do better.But when you see the statistics and the sadness in our country you will realise people want to see entertainment because they want to forget their daily grief.”
Neerja actress Sonam also justified colourful Bollywood films.
“Both my films Neerja and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo did equally well.So our country needs both these types of films ”,she said.
Sonam Kapoor emphasised the need for supporting basic issues affecting the nation.
“We always discuss about various issues like body shame,infrastructure,controversies but we often don’t talk about basic issues .
Malnutrition is one of the basic issues.More than 60 million children die yearly in our country.If my association with this cause helps to those children I would feel proud to be a part of it ”,she said.
On being asked she also agreed that some lines can be dedicated for the cause.
The Prem Ratan Dhan Payo actress said in a jolly mood,
“I will call Prasoon sir so that he can write some line for this cause.”
