Patna: Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra on Friday supported 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.
