Film industry people are social leaders: President Pratibha Patil

Addressing the 57th National Film Awards-2009 ceremony at the Vigyan Bhavan in New Delhi on Friday, President Pratibha Patil said: “Cinema is a very potent medium for conveying a message and it has become an important factor in influencing social norms. Cinema operates within the context of a social scenario and, thus, has a stake in the stability, prosperity and progress of society.”

“Therefore, all involved in the film industry should consider themselves social leaders and stakeholders in the welfare of people. Striking a balance between entertainment and social relevance is an essential call for the industry and the response will define its role in society.”
