It’s none other than Big B joining the side with major filmmakers like Anurag Kashyap, Mahesh Bhatt and many more over the chaos surrounding the release of #UdtaPunjab.
While promoting his upcoming movie “TE3N”, he spoke out his mind over the case, and nailed some points over Censorship. As quoted,
“Don’t try and kill creativity. If you kill creativity, you kill the soul. I know there are rules and regulations and that’s something that the government must decide. But as artists, as creative people, all I can say is don’t kill creativity.”
“We have all encountered such issues, there are rules and there are provisions. One can go to the courts. But the problem is that the censor portion comes right at the time of release and it then sets you back.”
Central Board of Film Certification’s decision with the title along with 89 cuts have been criticized widely by film industry, media and fans. AB concluded by saying,
“I hope we can devise a system where there’s certification rather than censoring.”
Well said Senior B.
