Updated on: 15 Jun 2016
Rannvijay Singh, the popular Punjab based TV anchor and actor, parried questions on Udta Punjab diplomatically on his recent Chandigarh visit.While not wanting to delve deeper into the controversy, he admitted that creativity is what makes us who we are and thus should not be compromised on.
What's your opinion on all the controversy surrounding the film Udta Punjab, especially since you are from Punjab?
I cannot judge what is right or wrong in this situation as I am not in any position of authority where I can decide. Personally, not only as an artist but for any profession if you were not given the freedom to express yourself, anyone could do your job. Everyone has their own style and method and probably that's the reason that they are working where they are. If someone jokes around, then we become insensitive and when someone shows us our reality then we become very sensitive, but everyone wants to do their job and I believe that a balance is extremely important. Though I hope the film gets released, if you want your message conveyed then there are other big platforms to reach people. You can always go there.
What do you think about the film now?
I feel that a lot of people will I now specially go to see the f film just to figure out what it is about...
