Actor Arshad Warsi says digital content platforms have given writers and directors freedom of expression which they do not get in films due to censorship. Talking about the boom in digital platforms, Arshad told IANS: "It is brilliant. It is a damn good thing. It has opened doors for so many competent directors and writers. For an actor, there is no difference. As an actor, there is no difference in my point of view.

"I act in films and digital platforms... It is the same thing I am doing. But for a writer and a director, they have got freedom of expression, because films will not allow that to you."

The actor, whose latest Bollywood release is "Fraud Saiyyan", added: "Films will not allow the writer to write what they really want to write because of so much of censorship, and on the digital medium, you suddenly have that freedom of what you really think that can be executed. So, that is a really great thing."
