Bollywood actor and BJP MP Ravi Kishan has demanded a ban on vulgar content in Bhojpuri movies and songs. He has written letters to union ministers and the chief ministers of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, demanding a ban.
He has also asked for a strict law to guarantee that such content in films and songs be stopped. In his letters, Ravi Kishan has pointed out that the Bhojpuri-speaking people in the country is around 25 crores.
"These people deserve a better deal and vulgarity that is being dished out by Bhojpuri cinema and in its songs, must be stopped," he said.
Ravi said that the Bhojpuri films and songs already released must also be brought under the purview of the advanced law. Ravi has been linked with Bhojpuri cinema for almost three decades now and has played a crucial role in spreading this regional cinema.
"I feel time has come for us to cut out vulgarity and ensure that Bhojpuri cinema is recognized for its quality and content. Today Bhojpuri cinema has become synonymous with vulgarity," he said.
He pointed out that the vulgarity in Bhojpuri films and songs was harming the minds of the young generations.
Ravi Kishan has also launched a private member bill to include the Bhojpuri language in the eighth schedule.
