There is always a tiff between filmmakers and the Censor Board in Bollywood. Majority of filmmakers today have criticized the board for its skewed nature of functioning. But director-actor Pooja Bhatt seems to have a different view on the issue.
“The film industry is still like a child. The number of people you need to fight within your own community before you even get to that stage (the censor board) is not funny. So, I think that there is a lot of growing up that not only the censor board has to do, but first the film industry has to do,” Pooja told IANS in an interview.
The actress has always been associated with bold cinema and has been a part of path-breaking films like Sadak, Sir, Zakhm and Tamanna.
“When we did ‘Jism‘ or ‘Sadak‘, people said that it won’t work. But it did and who accepted it? The audience did. The audience was always ready; it is the people making the movies who believe that they are not ready. We need to grow up,” she said.
