The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should be allowed to just certify films and not censor them, believes Anushka Sharma.
Discussing the recent success of the film fraternity against the CBFC, she says, “Once you classify a film as suitable only for adults, I don’t understand the need for such censorship. Adults are sensible and can distinguish between right and wrong."
“Restrictions on any creative person, limits their ability to churn out great work,” says Anushka, who is yet to watch Udta Punjab but says she has heard only good things about it so far. “Any filmmaker wishes to show the most real representation of a story on screen. NH10 was cleared with 9 cuts, most of which were ridiculous. People talk a certain way be it in Haryana or Punjab, and censoring that means taking the film away from reality,” she said.
Anushka says the team went ahead with the release because the cuts had not diluted the film as it would have done with Udta Punjab. In her next opposite Salman Khan, Sultan, Anushka will be seen as a wrestler. The Abbas Ali Zafar directorial is slated to release on this Eid ( July 6).
