A lot has been said about the Cen­sor Board and the way they have been op­er­at­ing. As an artist, what is your take on the Cen­sor Board’s be­hav­iour? Did Ta­masha face an is­sue too? Raj Ku­nal Sheth (Ahmed­na­gar)

RAN­BIR: I think they are be­ing a bit rad­i­cal and strict with things. Cre­atively we do un­der­stand the re­spon­si­bil­ity they have with the mes­sages and so­cial val­ues that a film should have, be­cause cinema is an art. But hav­ing said that, some cre­ativ­ity is ham­pered due to it. Cou­ple of peo­ple sit to­gether and de­cide what should be cut and what shouldn’t be. It’s an on­go­ing de­bate and I don’t know who is right and who is wrong. But as far as Ta­masha is con­cerned, there were just a few abu­sive words like ‘Saala’ which they wanted to cen­sor.
