Actress Rani Mukerji recently said that she will send her film MARDAANI to the censor board for re-certification. The actress wants to show the film on female trafficking to children who are above 12 years. However, her GHULAM co-star Aamir Khan feels that the film isn’t suitable for kids.

The actor said, "There are some words in the film that I would not my children to see (or listen). This is my personal opinion. It's a film that I would not want young children to watch because of the language used. I also feel that very small children should not feel violence of this kind. There is a shot of a finger being cut in the film. It’s not shown though. I don’t want an eight year old child to see that."

The 49-year-old actor added, "Rani may have a different opinion and I respect Rani very highly. She’s a very close friend of mine. I have seen the film and it does have a certain amount of violence. In fact, I feel that we have become so insensitive towards children that we show them anything. I am not talking about MARDAANI but of many other films. The most absurd things are sometimes shown in a U film or U/A film. I can’t believe my eyes to see how such things are shown in a U or U/A film. I feel we should be much more careful to the kind of violence we are exposing our children to. That’s very important."

Aamir feels he has some responsibility towards his audience. "I completely believe in freedom of speech. I am a creative person myself. But I also believe I have a responsibility towards what I am showing my children and to what age group I am exposing what thing to. Yes there is an argument today that everything is on the net and no matter what age you are, you can see what you want. I understand that but I have to fulfil my responsibility. I am not the one who can comment about what can be seen on the internet or not. I don’t want to show my child something so I would not want other children also to see it. I genuinely feel that children need to have a space where they grow freely without violence being shoved down their throat in the huge doses that we sometimes do."

Aamir Khan was present at the launch of 'Satyamev Jayate: Season 3' which starts on 21st September.
