Popular Hindi TV actress Juhi Parmar, known for her iconic roles on the small screen, recently took her 10-year-old daughter, Samairra, to watch the much-talked-about Hollywood movie “Barbie.” Starring the talented Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, the film has been the centre of attention due to its clever marketing and iconic title.
However, what Juhi and many other parents discovered during their theatre visit were shockingly inappropriate content that left them disappointed and heartbroken.
In an emotional Instagram post addressed to “Barbie,” Juhi candidly admitted to her mistake of not researching the film’s rating before taking her daughter to watch it. Within the first 10 minutes, she encountered a barrage of inappropriate language and sexual connotations that were entirely unsuitable for her young child. Distraught, she promptly walked out of the theatre, only to witness other parents doing the same, some with their little ones in tears.
Juhi expressed gratitude for her decision to leave early, as she couldn’t bear to think about how much worse it could have become had they stayed.
The actress raises a pertinent question about the responsibility of filmmakers and theatres when it comes to the content being showcased to young audiences. She wonders why there are no reminders or checks in place to warn parents about the movie’s rating and potential unsuitability for children. Juhi highlights the fact that as content creators, they are often questioned about the appropriateness of their content for children, so why are there no such safeguards for movies like “Barbie”?
Juhi questions the decision to include such explicit content in a movie that is inherently associated with children. She calls out the movie’s producers for betraying the innocent charm of Barbie and tarnishing its image by making it a PG-13 movie.
The actress emphasizes that even for children aged 13 and above, the language and content were still inappropriate.
Juhi’s concern is not limited to “Barbie” alone; she extends it to the wider film industry. She laments the prevalence of inappropriate content in many Hindi movies that remain unlabeled and are easily accessible to young viewers.
