People went to watch Chikni Chameli: Zoya Akhtar

By HT

Directors Karan Johar, Dibakar Banerjee and Zoya Akhtar spoke about issues, ranging from political censorship to lack of creative freedom, that plague filmmakers, during a panel discussion in the Capital, that was held as part of celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema. The trio also turned down allegations from the audience that Bollywood is responsible for promoting and glorifying violence against women. While Zoya had a curt response to the question, as she asked, “Don’t you go and watch an item number?” Dibakar, in his light-mannered way just urged everyone to look within.
