Mukesh Khanna, who is better known as Shaktimaan has finally talked about the burning issue of censorship. He said there has to be censorship to save the culture. He even pointed out the films which came out on the name of ‘freedom of expression’.
He said, ‘I differ from people who say we have freedom of expression. If due to your freedom of expression, our students are going wayward and the landscape of our country’s security is being altered, I would stop them. There has to be censorship. You can’t make anything. I am against it. Here in our country a film like ‘Grand Masti’ runs and becomes a superhit. People say it’s their freedom of expression. My foot. One should make good films.’
When asked about ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘I have not seen the film so I can’t say if it’s good or bad. But bad things, if any, have to stop. Drug menace is spread all over India. Drugs are mixed with ice cream and sold to children outside schools. Why is that not being stopped? Police doesn’t know? Everyone knows about it’.
Well, he is correct at some point of time, But doesn’t it sound like he is supporting his old friend Mr. Nihalani to some extent?
