A court on Wednesday directed continuation of the ban on broadcasting a documentary based on an interview with a convict in the December 16 Delhi gang-rape case. Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter to express their views on the ban.
Her parents are part of this. This documentary doesn't shame us. What's shameful is that those guys are still alive. Hang them publicly.— Punit Malhotra (@punitdmalhotra) March 5, 2015
How can showing a criminal mouthing depraved views amt to lionising him? It can only create revulsion in the viewer and lead 2 introspection— Azmi Shabana (@AzmiShabana) March 5, 2015

Documentaries are stories of truth! We should be embarrassed of the truth rather than the fact that the documentary got made#IndiasDaughter— Boman Irani (@bomanirani) March 5, 2015
I don't know what's in this documentary. But It seems like a country is fighting harder against embarrassment rather than for it's women.— Vir Das (@thevirdas) March 5, 2015
