Mumbai: Ace filmmaker Prakash Jha’s upcoming multi-starrer flick ‘Aarakshan’ is embroiled in a series of controversies, for it is based on the sensitive issue of caste based Indian society.
With Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Manoj Bajpai, Deepika Padukone and Prateik playing central characters in the film, Jha as always has come up with an issue based film on reservation, which happens to be one of the detrimental factors with respect to the growth of the country.
Saif Ali Khan believes that the film must be allowed to be screened without any opposition.
Talking to a tabloid, chote nawab said, “These issues are inherent in India and someone has to speak about them.”
The actor has also condemned protests against the screening of the film.
“I don`t think what is happening is right. Once the Censor Board has passed a film, without any cuts and with a U/A certificate, the least one can do is allow the film to be released. Yes, the subject of the film and the title itself has kind of invited controversies, but since the Censor Board had no issues, I see no reason why there should be objections raised by others? We must respect their judgment,” said Saif.
