India: Actor calls for consitutional freedom of expression rights in cinemas

17 August 2015

“I feel there should be constitutional right of freedom of expression. Either you give cinema artistes complete freedom of expressing themselves or you don’t have them in the society because in cinema, people can’t be open for attack all the time,” Indian actor Manoj Bajpayee told IANS.

According to the acclaimed actor Manoj Bajpayee, the need of the hour in Indian cinema – as much as in India itself – is complete freedom of expression.

“In Indian cinema, there is a censor board to interfere here and there, and then there are a number of people with their own interest. They are ready to ban it (a film) or rip the theatres or burn posters. (…) We are trained to receive praises or criticism but we are not trained to defend ourselves against the political attack or the attack on the theatres. So, Indian cinema needs freedom of expression in its totality,” said the 46-year-old actor.
