Mumbai. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling’s ‘Barbie’ is getting mixed response from the fans. Many celebs have taken the film released in India last Friday to show it to their children. TV actress Juhi Parmar also took her 10-year-old daughter Samaira to watch the film, however, she left the theater within 10 minutes. The actress wrote a long note on her social media handle explaining why she did not watch the entire film.

Juhi Parmar wrote in her note, “What I am sharing today will not please a lot of my viewers, some of you may make me very angry but I am sharing this note as a concerned parent about Barbie! Don’t make the mistake I did and please do your research before taking your child to a movie, the choice is yours!”

The note further read, “Dear Barbie, I begin by admitting my mistake, I took my 10 year old daughter Samaira to watch your film. Without researching the fact that it was a ‘PG-13’ (not for children under 13) film. 10 minutes into the film, inappropriate language, sexual acts and I walked out of the theater upset and wondering what I showed my daughter.”

Juhi Parmar wrote, “She was waiting to see your film and I was just shocked, disappointed what I had just shown her. I was the first person to walk out of the film within 10-15 minutes and by the time I reached out, I saw several parents raising objections about their young children. While some parents decided to stay to watch the entire film.

Juhi Parmar wrote, “Though I’m glad I decided to walk out within 10-15 minutes because I didn’t even want to think about what a bad film it was. Not to mention PG-13, the language and content of your film Barbie is also inappropriate for children 13 years of age and older. I had Barbie dolls as a child and most women had them when they were growing up and today most girls have the same when they grow up.

Juhi Parmar said, “It is a part of our childhood and today with your film, it has got a new life as everyone is talking about Barbie, wearing pink, having barbie parties and barbie manicures with the song “I am a barbie girl” playing in the background. What great marketing! And so I want to ask, why make a film that is such an essential part of a child’s life and then have content that is inappropriate for them.”
