Various demands of pro Tamil outfits for the ban on Madras Cafe, John Abraham has said that he will be taking his film to the audience as it has been given a green signal by the Censor Board.
MDMK leader Vaiko and Seemanm, founder of Naaam Thamizhar Katchi (We Tamils Party) have sought a ban on the movie saying that it was portrayed the outlawed LTTE in bad light.
“I respect everybody’s opinion. I respect Mr Vaiko’s point of view and Mr Seeman’s perspective. But it is very important that they also respect our opinion. This is a democracy. If the Censor Board has no objection with the film’s content and has given us an U/A certificate, then I don’t think there is anything wrong with the film. They are most welcome to go and raise their objections. And in our part, we will definitely take the film to the audience,” John told reporters here.
The director of the movie also expressed his anger over this issue, bringing in the democracy aspect.
“As a director, I can only make a film and show it. Like a political party, we cannot just begin any protest against what is being done to us. Freedom of speech is important in a democracy. None is above Censor Board and they don’t have a right to ban any film unless the President or Supreme Court has passed any orders,” the ‘Yahaan’ helmer said.
“Whatever is happening in Tamil Nadu is wrong. I request them not to speculate much about the film. Let the people watch it and then decide. They can’t force people not to watch the film. It is against the law,” Sircar said
The movie also features Nargis Fakhri and Raashi Khanna.
