Bollywood pahle hum to sudhar jaye… phir gyaan de duniya ko… naitikta( morality) per gyan ya protest zaroor karein lekin sath me pahle apna filmy ethics chk karo..pahle hum apne duality ko sudhare..

He called out the Bollywood folks for their hypocrisy and double-standards. The director also pleaded them to only share lectures about morality when their filmy ethics re in great shape. True or not, the director took a great stand against the over-sexualisation of films these days.
The tweeples seem to agree with Shoojit. Read some tweets below:
Meanwhile some Bollywood people asking about 'Naitikta' to each other, 'Is this the new girl in that item number?'
