We have some hit Hindi films where the hero is an adulterer like Sajan Chale Sasural and Maang Bharo Sajna. One thing is common among these films, they are not realistic or in any sense serious representation of marriage or affair. The films are either senseless comedies or they are stories of larger than life selfless women. On the other hand serious movies like Silsila and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna failed despite the presence of super stars. Is it difficult for us to watch when a film on extra marital relationship gets too real? Did Silsila become even more real with its casting?
Why can’t we accept extra marital affairs from our screen heroes?
