Mumbai: The Bhatt camp may have delivered bold content in their
movies like Murder, Jism, Raaz, but
veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt insists they have never
treated women as commodities in their films. "I have never looked
at women as commodities. Like in my film Arth we showed a
woman who deconstructs the institution of marriage. Our new
offering Murder 3 shows the women of today."
Zakhm was about a woman who chose to stay outside
marriage," he told reporters today. "In Murder it was
about a woman who decides to fulfil her desires as her husband was
not giving her what she was looking for," Bhatt said at an event
where the first look of Murder 3 was launched.
The filmmaker maintained that they did not treat actress Mallika
Sherawat (who featured in the first of the series) as a commodity.
"Our film Murder has not treated women like commodities.
Mallika Sherawat was the architect of her destination," the
The third installment in the Murder series is directed
by Mukesh Bhatt's son Vishesh. The film, starring Randeep Hooda and
Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead, will release next month.
