People all over India expressed their disappointment, rage and disapproval when government made a decision and banned the documentary based on December 16 Delhi gang-rape, named ‘India’s Daughter’. Bollywood’s PK actress Anushka Sharma also joined in the crowd and expressed her disapproval on the banning of the documentary, saying that such things make our country look regressive.
The actress said that even though she hasn’t watched British filmmaker Leslee Udwin‘s documentary ‘India’s Daughter’, she thinks the audiences in India are mature enough to decide on their own, what they want to watch or what they don’t. NH10 actress said, “I think such things should be left to public discretion and people’s intelligence. We are old enough to deal with our emotions in that way. If other people decide what we should watch then in a way they are judging our thought process. That is my problem. Keeping silent about such things is not an option otherwise, it will make us regressive as a society. People will feel repressed and it would lead to a lot more problems.”
Anushka Sharma, accompanied by her NH10 actor Neil Bhoopalamand co-producer Vikramaditya Motwane, was asked about her views on the topic during her promotional activity of NH10. The film, which also is based on a couple’s fight against assault and struggle, will be released in India this week on March 13, 2015. Filled with gore scenes, NH10 tells a story of a couple’s road trip gone horribly bad.
