Veteran singer Asha Bhosle is not too pleased with the "vulgar" content of contemporary films. So, she prefers to keep her grandchildren away from watching these.

"Hindi films are growing. Some good, small films are being made. But some films are very vulgar, they have abusive and vulgar dialogues," Bhosle said here.

"It's not good for the new generation. I don't show these films to my grandsons because then they start talking in the same manner," added the 78-year-old.

Nevertheless, she is set to make her acting debut with the title role in the film "Maaee". It is a sensitive tale of a woman who is abandoned by her only son and narrates how she finds shelter in her daughter and son-in-law's house.

Meanwhile, the veteran singer, who has been the voice of actresses ranging from Waheeda Rehman, Vyjanthimala, Sadhana, Sharmila Tagore to Rekha, Urmila Matondkar and Aishwarya Rai, says she has been lucky to have received so much love from the audiences for the past 65 years.

"I have been in this line for 65 years and I have literally ruled the industry during this time. I sung so many songs and got so much love and respect from the public. I don't know how much the industry loves me, but rarely does anyone get so much love from the public as I have," she said.

Bhosle, who has sung more than 12,000 songs in 18 languages, first sang in Bollywood in the 1956 film "C.I.D.". Besides singing for Bollywood, she has cut a lot of private albums and even partnered with some international artists.

In 2006, Bhosle recorded a song for a Pakistani film "Mein Ek Din Laut Kay Aaaonga".

People should start actually checking the censor board certification of movies before they drag their children into them. If a movie like Delhi Belly for example got an Adult certificate then that happened for a reason! Seriously, if you don't like those kind of movies, just don't watch them! It's that easy.

Besides, lets be honest: There were maaany movies made in the past decades as well that had "abusive" language in them. That type of language is also part of every culture. If you want realistic dialogues, you can't always talk like a poet.

Movies don't have such a strong influence on you in that they change the way you speak!<br/>
@ anil1234567 <br/>Are you serious? India is gonna have more teenage pregnancies because Sunny Leone is making Jism 2? LMAO. I wonder how old you are. Let me remind you if you don't know it yet: People dont get pregnant simply by watching movies. <br/>To all those prude people here: Kama Sutra was written in India more than 2000 years ago...and yet,people are more narrow-minded today than they were back then. If you really want to stickto "Indianroots", why not stick to the values of that time? You don't really care about preserving old traditions, for you it's more about conforming to the pressure of our (hypocritical) society today!<br/>I don't approve of those Bhatt movies either, but that is because they're often not well-made and reduce women to a sex symbol use them to sell their films.

Indian films need ratings seriously. I remember as a Kid if we are taken to a movie, my mom wld ask us to close eyes for certain scene, lol, violent and some vulgur songs. but they were not this worse. now the violence and the sensuality have increased by no bounds in current cinema.

Bwood films are becoming a little mainstream an have vegan to include a bit vulgar content so i agree with her its not something for kids to be watching. I know personally i went with friends who brought teir little brothers to watch rascals! And it was not something they should have been watching i mean it wasnt mature but some of the content was like =|. And i kept thinking if only indian films had ratigs! Because indian films are nothing like whatthe used to be were little kids could go without their parets and wath the movies without their parents worrying about what they were going to see! Now its not like that. Anywaysss agree with asha jii on that! But also cant wait for her debut as actress! Se can pull it offf well im certain!
