“A Woman’s Bra Is Not A Danger To Society!” Kangana Ranaut Speaks Up


Recently, Kangana Ranaut received the Special Achievement award at the Indian Of The Year 2015 event hosted by CNN. After she accepted the award, she was asked about censorship in Bollywood. It has become the talk of the town ever since the Censor Board of India asked the makers of Udta Punjab to make 84 cuts in the film and also remove ‘Punjab’ from the title. As we all know, that has caused a lot of furore in the industry. Here are a few things that Kangana said:

“We all have been concerned with the way things are going. I am not a director and have never been through that process but my friends seem extremely disturbed with the way things are. In fact, they feel bullied. They know there is a process of certification. But the thing is, we don’t need to have that parental attitude towards audiences that we have to protect them.”

“This reminds me of a particular incident in my movie Queen. There is a scene where my bra is on the bed… One day my director called me and said that censor board asked to blur it. We had put a lot of work on that bra. It was flown abroad all the way from Lajpath Nagar. So, we were shocked. Why do we see it as a danger to society? A woman’s bra is not a danger to society!”

“We need our own creative freedom and we are pressed against the wall. There is so much outrage… I hope that it will be addressed and I hope that there won’t be such incidences in the future.”

Well said.
