Naseeruddin Shah, who reached ‘Jashn-e-Rekhta 2022’, says that the language of Hindi films has changed very badly with time. He says, ‘Truth has been destroyed. Where has anything improved , cinema. Where do we get to hear Urdu in our films today. Earlier, we used to get to see Urdu on the certificate of the censor board. This was because poetry and song lyrics used to be in Urdu.

Expressing grief over the changed language of cinema, Naseeruddin Shah said, ‘Ab toh behuda alfaz hote hai. Nobody cares about the title of the film. Most of the titles are lifted from old songs.
‘Sikhs, Christians, Parsis… Muslims make fun of everyone’
The veteran actor also expressed displeasure over making fun of different communities in films. He says, ‘They have made fun of Sikhs, Christians, Parsis… In films, Muslims used to play the role of the hero’s best friend, who sacrifices his life while saving him. In this way films created a stereotype.
