No one grudges producers of Bollywood or elsewhere laughing all their way to the bank. But when the social responsibility aspect yields to commercial pressures, it hurts. Given the reach and the influence of movies, one shudders at the blatant use of vulgarity and profanity in movies – particularly the ones which are churned out by some of our highly respected production houses.
Here is a thought-provoking post on the ‘loo’ mania in some of our Bollywood flicks.

One fails to fathom the current obsession of Hindi films to include Loo scenes/Urinating scenes under some pretext or the other in most of their films.It is one thing to have newcomers or side-kicks doing such scenes to grab attention but it is shameful to watch our established stars and talented actors resorting to such inexcusable and atrocious gimmicks.
In the last few years, there has been a steady increase in the number of movies purposely incorporating such scenes which not only seem totally unnecessary to the story of the film but are also unleashing blatant vulgarity on the unsuspecting audience…
PK, Shamitabh, Gunday, Besharam, Humshakals, Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani, etc., are some of the recent examples of films which had some of our top stars flagrantly being part of these nauseating scenes and had the audience squirming in the seat out of sheer disgust.
