Megastar Amitabh Bachchan finds it disturbing when the "dancing around the trees" culture in Indian films is looked down upon.

Big B took to his blog to share his views on the subject.

"I often become a part of noticed debate on the culture of our films and our industry. And often have been privy to comments that not just criticise but also despise the efforts made by those who design their recall on the level of music and therefore its subsequent dance that it brings."

"The often mentioned 'dancing around the trees' comment. Yes ... it does happen, so what? So long as I am not dancing on your head, why not the tree?"

In the 70-year-old's opinion, those that "dislike it and annihilate its occurrence, must make (an) effort to enact it themselves, purely as an exercise".

"Find out what it takes to express music and its words and its feel, in the unrealistic escapist environment of our commercial film." he added.

Agree. I'd rather watch songs where they are dancing around the trees instead of actresses stripping in clubs, or doing intimate scenes now day in movies. All the movies that had dancing around the trees were actually hit movies lets not forget that.

I agree.
I have honestly, never seen ANY movies where there is "dancing around the trees"
That is such a stupid comment.
It's better than dancing around a pole.
