Veteran lyricist Gulzar has also commented on #metoo campaign going on these days.He said, harassment of women happens across the society and is not only limited to cinema.

"Directors are coming out, with much more bolder subjects which are touching the reality. Cinema is a reflection of one’s  society, and  what is happening  around. If we say harassment of a woman or a girl is only in cinema ,then it would be biased. It has spread all over the society," he said.

Gulzar was in conversation with film critic Rajeev Masand, at the success event of Bhavani Iyer's debut novel "Anon" on Tuesday.

The writer said, it is wrong to look at films as something which is going to teach morals to the audiences.

"Cinema is not Bible writing. It doesn't teach you morals, good values to live. Cinema is not meant for that. If you're looking at cinema that it'll tell you good values then you're mistaken. It's not Bible," he added.
