As a part of image building exercise, members of film and television fraternity met Mumbai police yesterday to discuss the dignified portrayal of police and women in films.

In the packed closed door meeting attended by senior police officers and prominent Bollywood  and television personalities, Mumbai police commissioner, Satyapal Singh requested members of Bollywood  to portray women and police in good light as this will help maintain safety of women and maintaining of law and order in society.        

Later addressing the media, the police commissioner said, “Police is an institution of government and its face. Projecting its right image will help making the city safer. Film industry is the most creative section of society and we have asked them to them to help police and society in crimes against women, terrorism, and community bonding and making the city a safer place.”

Terming the meeting as “extremely fruitful and satisfying” Joint CP Crime, Himanshu Roy said that more initiatives of similar kind will be taking place in days to come.

Expressing happiness on opening lines of communication by the police commissioner, writer and lyricist, Javed Akhtar said that the issue here was how to come together and collaborate so that better rapport and understanding is created between police and people.

“One section of society wants security, harmony, love and peace to prevail while the other section is against it.  While there is no difference in the industry and police point of view through films we convey message to the society. Like police, the film industry too wants peace, love and security,” he said.

Admitting that some films portray women in an undesirable manner, Akhtar said that if the film does not convey a sense of morality and code of conduct followed by society it will be rejected.
