Television has a bigger audience than films: Anil Kapoor

Actor Anil Kapoor, who is associated with the campaign’Because I am a Girl’, says that television has a wider audience than films and it can help spread social messages about saving the girl child more effectively amongst the Indian audiences.

Television has a bigger audience than films. Especially in villages and small cities, women and children watch TV on a bigger scale. One should try to find a solution’ or a way to include the message about ‘girl child into the script, which will act as an effective tool to spread the message

Anil believes that such shows if put across in an entertaining manner will spread the message effectively.

If you do it in an entertaining way then more people will watch it… you know, people want entertainment because there is already a lot of stress.

the 52-year-old said.

Anil said:

Big filmmakers like Bimal Roy saab, Raj Kapoor, Satyajit Ray – they made such great films and people watched them. But somewhere there was a message and such films have a big influence. So, I would want filmmakers and TV show makers to make such films and shows.
