Filmmaker Farah Khan believes that films should not be preachy, but adds that a filmmaker should ensure that his or her film is not sending out wrong kind of messages.

"The movies, instead of having a preachy message, should show you the right principles without preaching or without making it on that message. So, if there is a movie, make sure that the women are not depicted terribly or horribly in it," the 48-year-old said here Tuesday at a Special Rally by P&G Shiksha for School Children.

"It may be entertaining, it could be fun to watch, it could have song and dance but it should not send out sub-consciously a wrong message into the audience. I think that is the responsibility of every filmmaker," she added.

Meanwhile, filmmaker Arbaaz Khan, who made his debut as director with "Dabangg 2" last year, sees films as pure entertainers.

"I personally believe that movies are predominately for entertainment and if you can encapsulate a message and lace it very sweetly, then fine," he said.

Arbaaz was also present at the event.

"But I think there are other platforms where a message has to be given very strongly. Let's keep movies purely for entertainment," he added.
