Speaking on NDTV's Walk The Talk, actor Irrfan Khan says Indian cinema has evolved dramatically in the last few years and the demand for diverse cinema has been growing.Indian audiences have matured and are forcing Indian cinema to change, he says. However he adds that Bollywood has remained politically correct and directors don't make political films out of fear and vulnerability. Praising 'Udta Punjab' he says, the film did what media couldn't: draw attention to Punjab's drug crisis in an intelligent way. On the fallout over Censor Board's tussle with films, Irrfan says he says the board's role cannot be a closed-door affair in a free country and he hopes Bollywood will speak out more.
