'Udta Punjab' controversy: Anurag Kashyap takes on Censor Board
Anurag Kashyap unleashed a barrage of tweets yesterday over the Censor Board's issues with his upcoming production, 'Udta Punjab'
Anurag Kashyap unleashed a barrage of tweets yesterday over the Censor Board’s issues with his upcoming production, Udta Punjab. Just a few days ago, he had blamed the media for blowing things out of proportion. But the back-to-back tweets of the filmmaker tell another story. Check out his tweets...
“I always wondered what it felt like to live in North Korea ... Ab to plane pakadney ki bhi zaroorat nahin.”
“There is no film more honest than Udta Punjab ... And any person or party opposing it is actually guilty of promoting drugs. And the trolls are out to create a diversion.”
“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.”
“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.”
“So please don’t colour my fight with any political affiliation because there is none.”
Err... why does everything end up becoming HIS fight?
