Trust Bollywood’s queen Kangana Ranaut for making sensible statements when it comes to gender issues! The National-award winning actress was presented Indian Of The Year award by CNN. While accepting her award the actress was asked about her opinion on the ongoing Udta Punjab controversy surrounding the censorship.
To the question, Kangana said, “We all have been concerned with the way things are going. I am not a director and have never been through that process but my friends seem extremely disturbed with the way things are. In fact, they feel bullied. They know there is a process of certification. But the thing is, we don’t need to have that parental attitude towards audiences that we have to protect them.”
“This reminds me of a particular incident in my movie Queen. There is a scene where my bra is on the bed… One day my director called me and said that censor board asked to blur it. We had put a lot of work on that bra. It was flown abroad all the way from Lajpath Nagar. So, we were shocked. Why do we see it as a danger to society? A woman’s bra is not a danger to society!,” she added.
“We need our own creative freedom and we are pressed against the wall. There is so much outrage… I hope that it will be addressed and I hope that there won’t be such incidences in the future,” said Kangana.
Those are a queen’s words! Well said!
