Actor Kangana Ranaut, who was last seen in filmmaker Nikhil Advani's Katti Batti, on Friday said she does not believe the film business is "a platform for charity".

"I don't think films as a business is a platform for charity. We as people can contribute and we do contribute to many platforms... Sometime we talk about it sometimes we don' can't make a film for charity," she said at the 13th edition of Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, to a query if she thought of making a film for charity.

She was participating with fellow actor Kareena Kapoor Khan and film-maker Imtiaz Ali at a panel discussion at the summit.

Ali, who directed successful films such as Jab We Met, Rockstar and his latest release Tamasha, added the film fraternity are doing their bit for the charity.

"There are a lot of people in the film industry who are doing much (more) than you know. As much as charity is concerned the only thing is that we don't go around and publicise our charity,” he said.

The two-day event, which flagged off on Friday, is led by 30 global leaders comprising politicians, corporate heads, artists, prominent sportspeople and economists who are meeting under one roof to discuss India’s future as "the world’s bright spot".
