Director Konkona Sensharma says it is the 'duty and responsibility' of the showbiz world to expose children to different kinds of content.

"I think it's very important...the kind of content that we put out there. It's our duty and responsibility to expose our kinds to different kind of things," the actress-turned-director said in a statement to IANS. 

"I want my son (Haroon) to watch all kinds of different things and not just what is available, the images that are being sent to us every day in the media," she added. 

The actress, who also appreciated Sony BBC Earth's Blue Planet II: One Ocean and The Deep, for the content, says she is doing her bit to save the planet. 

"It is a lifestyle choice, a kind of thinking and awareness that we have to make ourselves informed and be aware and be committed to make these changes so that we can do it in everyday life -- whether it is saving water or recycling, so many things that can be done... Not using plastic bags, cutlery or extra paper napkins. It's a mindset. Once it's switched on, you can apply to it many such opportunities that we come across in a day. We can make those correct decisions accordingly," she said. 

Konkona is known for films like Mr and Mrs Iyer (2002), 15 Park Avenue (2005), Page 3 (2005), Wake Up Sid (2009). She was last seen on-screen in Alankrita Shrivastava's Lipstick Under My Burkha (2016). Sensharma won the Best Debut Director award for her film, A Death In The Gunj (2016), at the recently concluded International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) awards in Bangkok.
