“Questions are being raised freedom of expression”, Amitabh Bachchan at Film Festival

Amitabh Bachchan is one of the renowned actors in Bollywood. The actor recently appeared at the inauguration of the Kolkata International Film Festival 2022 on Thursday evening. The grand film festival was inaugurated in the presence of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee. The event was attended by Shah Rukh Khan, Jaya Bachchan, and Rani Mukerji among others.

Amitabh Bachchan addressed the gathering from the stage and spoke on cinema and censorship. The actor said, “The 1952 Cinematograph Act set out the structure of censorship as it stands today upheld by the film certification board (Central Board of Film Certification). But even now, ladies and gentlemen--and I am sure my colleagues on stage will agree questions are being raised on civil liberties and freedom of expression.”

Shah Rukh Khan also took to the Twitter and wrote, “The world has become normal. We are all happy, I am the happiest. And I have no objection in stating that duniya kuch bhi kar le, main aur aap log aur jitney bhi positive log hain sab ke sab, zinda hain (me, you all and all the positive people are alive).”

Speaking about the film, Uunchai stars Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Parineeti Chopra, Neena Gupta, and Sarika in pivotal roles. It has been directed by Sooraj Barjatya under Rajshri Productions. The filmmaker, who is known for directing films such as Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo, Hum Saath Saath Hain etc, has returned to the director’s chair after seven years with this film.
