Ekta Kapoor slams "backward male attitudes" in India

'The Dirty Picture' Producer Ekta Kapoor has bemoaned regressive male attitudes in India, saying it is stopping women in their tracks.

Kapoor was delivering a speech titled "Sex, Nudity, Dancer Numbers and the Kiss" at the inaugural 'Cut Uncut' Film Festival which features unedited versions of Bollywood films which fell foul of India's notorious Censor Board.

The producer of such risque fare as 'Love, Sex Aur Dhoka' and 'Ragini MMS' said: "Mentality of men in India is becoming a problem.  Men do not feel any social responsibility. Our culture is stopping women every time. The main idea behind making 'The Dirty Picture' was to make people aware of women's sexuality.

"When John Abraham goes shirtless nobody has a problem but when our actresses do that everyone wants to chop off that scene", she added.

Kapoor, 37, also expressed shock after being accused of promoting "violence against women" with her latest release 'Ek Thi Daayan'.

"It was a horror film and I didn't promote any witchcraft in it.  I even got a letter from the National Commission of Women where to my surprise, I was charged for using the Nirbhaya issue during the promotion of the film.  I used a bus which was titled 'The bus to hell' and they assumed I roped in the rape case to promote my film."

The producer also said she believes that the item number 'Fevical Se' from 'Dabangg 2', featuring Kareena Kapoor, was unjustly criticised because the film as a whole had a very "progressive" approach towards women.

"I appreciate Salman and Arbaaz for their progressive thinking and incorporating the same in the film.  Arbaaz very well utilised Salman's stardom to highlight the responsibilities a man has towards his wife and society.  There were four scenes in the film that really took me by surprise", Kapoor added.
