As Aarakshan controversy jolts Bollywood, celebs take to Twitter to attack the paranoid establishment. Here're their tweets:
Karan Johar, director
Cinema is a medium of expression...democracy allows the freedom of expression...is this only in theory??? And who stands accountable?? SAD.
Anupam Kher, actor
'Aarakshan' is a victim of today's dirty Politics. Movies don't have agendas, politician's do.:)
Make a film about an important socio-political issue. Get banned! This is why we can't make real films. I WANT TO BITCHSLAP OUR POLITICIANS!
A democracy, where we can only say what they allow us to say. Shame.
Suhel Seth, marketing and management guru
Aarakshan is a film for God's sake. We can't be paranoid and have creativity held hostage by lunatic politicians!!! - Gul Panag retweeted Seth's tweet
Madhur Bhandarkar, filmmaker
It is really sad that states are banning AARAKSHAN. Should we filmmakers from now on start making Cartoon films
