The new year has an exciting and eclectic slate of films lined up for Sonakshi Sinha, who says she would love to work in a movie aimed at entertaining children.

“I feel it is very crucial to keep the kids entertained in every household as it keeps them occupied and also aids them in learning new things. I hope to see more films which are made by keeping kids in mind as an audience and more engagement events to be held,” Sonakshi Sinha told IANS via email.

The actress joined in a bit of kiddie fun in Mumbai earlier this month at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, which will be aired on Nickelodeon on January 6, 2019.

Anything specific that she would like to do in the children’s genre?

“I would love to. I do feel I have a very strong connection with kids, could be because we’re on the same wavelength (laughs).

“Kids are just drawn to me and I just enjoy being around them, so I feel it would be wonderful if I was able to work on a film that is all out just for kids,” she said.

In 2019, Sonakshi has films like “Kalank”, “Mission Dangal” and “Dabangg 3” to look forward to.

“I feel blessed that I have such wonderful projects coming my way and it is truly thrilling to work on them. I cannot wait for all of them to hit the theatres,” she said.

At a time when YouTube is facing flak for not being careful with issues concerning children, a new study shows that videos featuring kids under 13 years gather three times more traction on the platform.

US-based Pew Research Centre assembled a list of popular YouTube channels that existed through late 2018, and it analyzed all of the videos that those channels produced during the first week of January 2019.

While only a small number of English language videos were targeted at children, they still received more views on average than other videos that were not targeted at children, The Verge reported on Thursday, citing the report.

However, according to a YouTube spokesperson, the top categories on the app do not include kids specifically. Comedy, music, sports and ‘how to’ remain the most popular categories.

Still, including kids in videos to increase views is a facet of YouTube that many creators have picked up on, the report said.

One of the largest family vlogging channels on YouTube — The Ace Family — amassed more than 16 million subscribers in around three years.

Jake Paul, a famed vlogger known for his pranks, invited a family to live in his house so he could vlog with their four-year-old-son Tydus.

As of now, YouTube’s current terms of service state that its platform is not intended for children under the age of 13.

Earlier this week, YouTube came under the scanner for promoting white supremacy by letting a kids’ channel show racist content by portraying “beauty” and “ugly” looks in fair and dark skin shades, and failing to remove it despite reports.

Last week, Google reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over alleged violations of children’s data privacy laws on YouTube. (IANS)
