The megastar has said that Aarakshan makers have followed law and they should have freedom to present the film the way they like, but would follow the dictate if certain bodies decide to ban the movie.
"I believe that each state has jurisdiction, liberty, power to stop the projection of a film if they don't deem it appropriate to release it. They have the power to stop the release for maximum 2 months. We have followed the law, we should have freedom to present it. If certain bodies decide to ban it, we'll follow their dictate," Big B told Times Now.
Film critic Taran Adarsh has also reacted strongly to the ban saying, "By banning a film, you are depiriving people of watching the film. People would anyway watch it on pirated CDs. It's only creating more curiosity about the film."
Concurs Komal Nahata, film analyst, "It's politically motivated and brainless with no application of mind. When Censor Board has cleared it, why should anybody have problem with this."
Meanwhile, Prakash Jha has decided to approach Supreme Court. The hearing will start at 2pm.
