Censorship is a childish trait in a grownup society - Kamal Haasan

Censorship is a childish trait in a grownup society - Kamal Haasan
The Vishwa Hindu Parishad has called for a ban on the new Tamil Kamal Haasan starrer as they feel one of the songs may offend devotees of Lord Vishnu. Reacting to the ban call, Kamal Haasan spoke exclusively to this writer. "As an ex- Vaishnavite and an ex-Shaivite, I can only feel concern for my detractors lack of knowledge on their own mythology. These are small groups who claim to represent the quite majority who know better." The actor-filmmaker can't understand the fuss when the film has been cleared by the Cbfc. "The certification board also had responsible people some I sure would like to identify themselves as such. They enjoyed the film and found no reason to take umbrage. My film has been certified U, which means it is suited to audiences of all ages." The amazing Kamal Haasan, who went through hell and high water trying to get

Why is Aamir Khan feeling ashamed?

Aamir Khan apologised to Kamal Haasan publically for not standing by him when his film Vishwaroopam was banned in 2013. Both the actors were present at the inauguration of Ficci Frames 2015.

"To stop a film after it has been through certification is certainly not right. Some groups take violence into their own hands to stop a film. That's really sad and unfortunate. I think that happened with Mr. Kamal Haasan sometime back. I feel ashamed to say that at that time I was lost in my work. But as an industry, this is the time when we have to come together and stand by each other. I apologise to you publically that I wasn't there at that time. I read about it later and felt very bad. I felt bad that you had you go through it and we were not there with you. It's really unfortunate," said the 50-year-old actor.

Sonakshi paired with Rajinikanth but only after age-difference justified by script
Sonakshi Sinha has been finalized to play the lead opposite Rajinikanth in K Ravikumar's next film. However the offer was accepted only after the yawning age difference between the two actors was justified. Says a source close to the family, "Shatruji and Rajinikanthji are contemporaries. When the two of them worked together in K C Bokadia's Asli Naqli Sonakshi was running around on the sets in frocks! Now to be offered a role opposite him is a bit like cradle-snatching." Informs the Sinhas' close associate, "She wanted to work with Rajini Sir, who doesn't? And Rajini Sir has worked with heroines who are almost as young as Sonakshi. Working with younger heroines is no big deal in the Mumbai film industry. Even Kareena Kapoor was just a kid running around on the sets when Akshay Kumar worked with Kareena's sister Karisma. Later Akshay and Kareena were fine as a screen pair.
