'Do We Want To Turn India Into Saudi Arabia?' Filmmakers Unite For Udta Punjab
Mumbai:  Top Bollywood directors and producers have united against the 89 censor cuts that have been recommended to the film 'Udta Punjab', which is based on the debilitating drug menace in the state.
Following are the top quotes by filmmakers on the issue:
  • The year is 2016, we have a globally connected population. All the talk of growth and progress is poppycock if the freedom of our founding fathers is taken away. Do you want to turn India into Saudi Arabia?

    Mahesh Bhatt, Filmmaker

     
  • There are many things which are made which offend me by how they portray women. But I cannot stop them. I can choose not to buy the ticket. Udta Punjab needs to release, denying a problem does not help it.

    Zoya Akhtar, Filmmaker

     
  • Let us make sure we fight for what this country stands for.

    Shahid Kapoor, Actor

     
  • It is sad that we have to stand here today and justify ourselves. That we have been made to stand for a stamp of approval from the government. We are just filmmakers, didn't know we had to do all this for a film.

    Anurag Kashyap, Director

     
  • Anything that attacks the freedom of speaking is frustrating...we don't need to tolerate it unnecessarily.

    Imtiaz Ali, Director
