New Delhi, March 12 -- Actors Anushka Sharma, Neil Bhoopalam and Darshan Kumar, who will be seen in the upcoming film NH10, were a fun riot when they came together to charm the winners of HT City's Stars in the City contest on Tuesday.
The trio danced and laughed at the subtle jokes on them and entertained as they mouthed Haryanvi dialogues from their film. The chat with the actors moved from fun to serious when they were asked if they agreed with the censorship on cuss words in films, even when these seem relevant to the script.
Anushka, who is also producing the film, said that this censorship rule is 'frustrating'. "What people forget is that ultimately what you're showing in movies is what actually happens. Where are we (the film fraternity) getting our ideas from? Where are our stories coming from?" asked the 26-year-old.
Not one to buy the logic that films influence people adversely, Anushka added, "Everybody knows that bad words nahi use karne chahiye. Toh mat karo na use bad words. You can't say, 'filmon mein nahin hona chahiye', because actually, films represent what happens in reality. That's what we're meant to do."
The script of her film has some expletives, too. But that, she insisted, are a "natural part of the plot and haven't been introduced to sensationalise anything." Neil added, "If what we see on screen is so influential and people copy everything, then why don't we see couples dancing and singing on the street?"
