Stalking a girl wherever she goes - then impressing her is basically the story of every Hero trying to woo a girl in a number of Bollywood films. However, this is a common phenomenon that we across in the most of the films, this act has and is certainly setting some wrong examples.

Speaking about the same, filmmaker Karan Johar expressed in an interview, "The moment you put a woman in the centre and a thousand men looking at her lustingly, it's setting the wrong example. As a filmmaker, I have made those mistakes and I will never do it again".

Speaking with more details, Karan further added, "When you show a man chasing a woman, it seems like it all so passionate about love but it could amount to stalking. When you show a man being abusive to a woman you think he is being angry but no, he is being wrong. Things you show on celluloid sometimes set a template. So we as filmmakers need to be very responsible. Sometimes you don't realise the things you write or project but you don't know that they will actually impact society".

Pointing out some of the item songs that Karan Johar has included in his films are Katrina Kaif in Chikni Chameli, Kareena Kapoor in Mera Naam Mary Hai and Shilpa Shetty in Shut Up and Bounce.

We respect Karan's ideas and believe that the filmmaker abides by his rule of not objectifying women in his films.

And he should stop putting down tomboys in his movies. In KKHH, he showed Rahul falling for Anjali only when she transforms from a tomboy to a saree clad girly girl. And in SOTY, he showed Alia's tomboy best friend as a salwar-kameez clad housewife after 10 years leap. Why can't he show both the girls being themselves till the end instead of transforming them so much?
