Bollywood seems to be rallying behind Udta Punjab. Now top Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has come out in support of Anurag Kashyap’s “Udta Punjab” and said creativity should not be curbed in democracy.
“I don’t think creativity should be stopped and controlled in a democracy. It is either in scenes or title of the film. It is something that should be set free. Our forefathers achieved freedom of speech and expression after a long struggle,” Priyanka told media here.
When asked about the controversy over Hindi film “Udta Punjab”, she said that the censor board is a “certification body and not censor”.
“In democracy, you cannot dictate what one should eat or watch a movie on a social issue,” said the National Award-winning actress.
Priyanka was here for promotion and screening of Bhojpuri film “Bum Bum Bol Raha Hai Kashi”, produced by her.
One of the busiest stars at the moment Priyanka Chopra has been making waves off- late due to her role in American ABC TV series Quantico as an FBI agent. She has also got a role in Baywatch . And has thus made her mark in the US.
