I kind of agree with everyone's replyLOL
 
In a way Saif is right because the child's parents are their first teachers...Every paren teaches and should teach their kids...about the right and wrong, the morals and the impotance of being a good human being...but at a certain point when the child gets exposed to the world outside the home...there are a lot of other things that influence the child's impressionable minds...
 
The movies are one of the biggest influence in our society and on the minds of the kids whether we like it or not...So while some may consider movie just as a business but the truth is that when something that is viewed by such a large audience and our actors who are larger than life and our idolised by millions of young people...just saying that they are not the mothers doesn't cut it...they do have a certain responsibility towards the society, especially the young followers...They cannot shrug their shoulders and say...I am an actor and I don't care...
This is the reason that I believe that even though our movies show us the reality of life ...they should in the end come up with the right solution ...What would a movie like DON or Dabangg teach our young audience...that is OK to be a bad person and rob a bank and get away with it ...or is it OK to be a bad cop taking bribes from everyone, dancing and drinking on duty...
At the end of the day ...the answer to what are movies or our actors owe to the societ is not as simple as a YES or NO...but somewhere a balance has to be attained...

Saif's right. Teach your children to differentiate between good/bad and also live in a free, tolerant society. Stop demanding ban on literature and cinema.

I loved reading both sides of the debate.
Thumbs up to Guess-Who for bringing forth some strong points, though I dont quite agree. But its hard to argue/debate with someone when they're this persuasive. 

I can see both sides, though I'm tempted to agree with Saif Embarrassed
OMFG, did I just prove Guess-Who's point? LOL

No but for real, I wouldnt do something, no matter how much I idolize Bebo or Saif, just coz they're doing it. 
As for smoking onscreen, I have a short anecdote.
I've been showing some family friends bollywood movies and music videos to get them into it. And they're loving it.
Recently I showed em chikni chameli, and suddenly they burst out laughing. I was confused as to why they laughed, till they said, "did that actually say 'smoking is injurious to health' at the bottom?"

And sure enough, I realized that during one moment, Kat strikes a match against her chest and lights up a cigarette in a backup dancer's mouth, and this caption shows up at the bottom. 

I always thought that action looked visually amusing, just coz it went with the lyrics so well.
Its kinda sad that you dont have the creative freedom to use such perks and props just coz of this extra responsibility that you never signed up for.

I do agree with the over all take home message of his POV but it does not hurt for actors to be responsible towards society. After all, they have a lot of influence on young adults especially in a country where cinema is such a huge part of recreational activity.

I can't blame him, while actors should act as role models to some degree, it's incumbent upon the parents on how they want to raise their kids.
