Farhan Akhtar Condemned The Actions Over “Padmavati”

Following the removal of the Marathi film “Nude” and Malayalam film “S Durga” from the International Film Festival, filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh resigned from the post of Jury Head on Tuesday, November 14, while actor Farhan Akhtar has now resigned from these films. In his latest interview, Farhan has said that we work within the framework of the prescribed instructions, after which if there is a dilemma then it is the responsibility of the administration to protect the film and filmmakers.

It is worth mentioning that in the 48th edition of the International Film Festival of India, which will be held in Goa from November 20–28, the jury of 13 members recommended Marathi film “Nude” and “S Durga”. But the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has removed these films from the final selection. In an interview given to a TV channel, Farhan has endorsed the release of these films. In response to a question, Farhan said, “It is not just about two films related to it, it has happened many times before. I had openly told myself that it should not be so. I am against any ban on anything.”

While supporting filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who has been accused of falsifying history for Padmavati, Farhan Akhtar said, “I believe that we should stop treating the audience like a kid. Now the time has come where we have become so vocal that we can deal with any kind of content. Let the ideas come to different issues. There is no rule of law regarding the release of what should be shown and what not.”

He also said, “You have the freedom to boycott the movie. If you do not agree with any idea then you have the freedom to not see the movie. You also have the freedom to refuse people to watch the movie. But you do not have the freedom to threaten someone, to sabotage someone’s theater. In the movie industry, we have a dependence on the Central Board of Film Certification to tell us what is right and what not. Once we get permission from the board, then it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting that the film and the filmmakers should be provided security.”

Farhan continuing on this point said, “It has happened before when the films have been banned and later they have been allowed to release. It can be troublesome and may take time too but it will happen. I believe that the whole film industry should stand together on this issue. We are also responsible for such situation.”
