It’s like living in North Korea: Kashyap on Udta Punjab storm

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

“There is no film more honest than ''UDTA PUNJAB''... And any person or party opposing it, is actually GUILTY of promoting drugs.''

Anurag Kashyap, one of the producers of "Udta Punjab", has compared the ongoing censorship regarding his upcoming film "Udta Punjab" to the dictator regime of North Korea. The "Bombay Velvet" director said there is no sense of freedom here.

"I always wondered what it felt like to live in North Korea... Ab to plane pakadney ki bhi zaroorat nahin...," he posted on Twitter.

The 43-year-old film-maker's tweet came after Censor Board had purportedly raised certain objections regarding references to Punjab following which the movie may have to go through some changes. The film deals with the substance abuse in the Northen part of the state and its effects on the youth.

Kashyap urged political parties to stay away from his censorship battle. "I request Congress, AAP and other political parties to stay out of my battle. It's my Rights vs the Censorship. I speak only on my behalf."

The "Gangs of Wasseypur" helmer, who often faces the brunt of censorship, says his fight is not against the Censor Board. "It's my fight vs a dictatorial man sitting there operating like an oligarch in his constituency of censor board, that's my North Korea. Rest of you, go pick your own fights. I will fight mine. Please don't colour my fight with any political affiliation because there is none."

Kashyap, who shot to fame with ''Black Friday'', a realistic film about the 1993 bomb blasts, said, “Udta Punjab is more honest than my film Black Friday and whoever has any issue with this film, has to be corrupt.”
