Mumbai: Irrfan Khan is very much unlike the others Khans of Bollywood. He has proved time and again that he belongs to a different league of actors and in his personal life too, opines differently from his colleagues.

The government’s recent decision to revoke ban on pornographic websites has upset Irrfan, it seems. The method actor, believes that some amount of moderation of content on the internet is required, else too much of freedom and easy access to porn, will have adverse effect on children.

While most of his colleagues vented out their angst against the govt’s initial decision to impose a ban on pornography, Irrfan maintained a different stance.

“Freedom to access any kind of information and entertainment on the internet is a fine thing. But this accessibility to porn is a huge problem for parents whose children are prematurely exposed to adult content. There is no stopping the free flow of smut on the internet,” DNA quoted Irrfan as saying.

“It's not only about child pornography, which is a very serious issue. It's also about children getting free access to pornography. A five-year old child can look at sexually explicit content on the net without knowing what is being done. It can mess up his perceptions of gender equations for all times,” the powerhouse of talent added.
