Speaking on the issue of censorship, Ekta said, "We honour certain values as we enter people's houses and I certainly keep that in mind for our programmes. He (the film viewer) should be allowed to what he wants to see outside his house," she said while speaking at a Q & A session at the FICCI Ladies Organisation here last evening
"The film was never brought to us for censorship," he said, adding that the commerce and information ministry had also asked the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulation Authority (PEMRA) to ensure that Neerja is not shown on cable channels throughout Pakistan
"I feel the censorship of movies should also look at the censorship of various other mediums of communication that the audience is used to. So if there is free flowing information, let's say on Torrents, on the internet and I can get to see anything, then to be stopped from watching it," Imtiaz Ali said
"I think 'intolerance' has become a taboo for everyone. If you talk about censorship then I agree with Benegal. Cinema is a creative medium. The director has the right to express. In the times of social media, with everything on internet just a click away, I wonder how censoring a few things could help," said Divya
Anil Kapoor, in an interview with NDTV, expressed his views on censorship in India. "Films should be certified and not censored. But somewhere, you have to understand the sensitivity of a country also. India cannot be America and America cannot be India. It has to be a slow progress," Anil Kapoor told NDTV.
Actor Dev Patel, who stars in The Man Who Knew Infinity, the biopic of Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan, spoke to NDTV about his experience of shooting for the film. The actor also opened up about his relationship with his co-star Jeremy Irons, censorship issues in India and his Slumdog Millionaire co-star Anil Kapoor.
