The controversy around the upcoming film Udta Punjab, a film on the drug menace in Punjab, refuses to die down.
Even as some of the biggest filmakers from Bollywood went all out to defend the film and its co-producer Anurag Kashyap in his standoff with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on Wednesday, actor Amitabh Bachchan has also commented on the issue.
Amitabh Bachchan- “I hope we can device a system where there is certification rather than censor. Don’t try and kill creativity. We all must have the freedom to create because we are in this field and all we have is our soul to create”.
“When you kill our creativity, you kill our soul. That would be detrimental to progress per say. I am not aware of Udta Punjab issue. But it is unfortunate that there is going to be a delay that they have to fight their way to the high court”.
