We're becoming overstrict, should give freedom to directors: Parineeti

Published On : 01 Jul 2017


Mumbai, (PTI) Actress Parineeti Chopra said people are becoming "overstrict" when it comes to allowing filmmakers to express themselves.

Recently, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani objected to the use of word "intercourse" in Shah Rukh Khan's "Jab Harry Met Sejal" teaser.

When asked for her take on the issue, Parineeti told reporters, "I think we have started overthinking things. It's true that a lot of things do impact the society, but films also play a role in it.

"If there is anything in the film which will have huge negative impact on kids, us, then that should be dealt with but there are certain things about which we are overthinking."

The 28-year-old actress said curbing filmmakers' freedom of expression isn't the right thing to do.

"I won't name anyone but I feel we are becoming overstrict. Somewhere we are going against the freedom of making films. Films are larger than life. We show things which don't otherwise happen in real life in the movies. But when we overthink and start cutting a lot of things, then it'll become a documentary.

"We should allow that freedom of expression, allow filmmakers to use their imaginative minds to entertain you all. So I feel we have started overthinking," Parineeti said at a special event of Reliance Digital here.
