We should’ve freedom to speak in a democracy: Farah on Dadlani
Mumbai : Filmmaker Farah Khan has come out in support of music composer friend Vishal Dadlani after he criticised the recent visit by a Jain monk to the Haryana Assembly.
Dadlani had created a furore with his tweet against Jain monk Tarun Sagar, who was invited by the Haryana government to deliver a lecture ‘Kadve Vachan’ in the Assembly on Friday.
Farah, who has worked with Dadlani in all her films from “Main Hoon Na” to “Happy New Year”, said she supports the composer as a friend.
“As a friend, I support Vishal. I have always supported him. If we say our country is democratic then we should havethe freedom to speak as well,” Farah said at an event here.
Dadlani, 43, later deleted the tweet and apologised for hurting the sentiments of the Jain community even as the Ambala police registered an FIR against him and booked him for “hurting religious sentiments”.
Meanwhile, reacting to the recent controversy wher the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) took objection to few scenes from Sidharth Malhotra-Katrina Kaif-starrer “Baar Baar Dekho”, Farah said it is better if the Board just sticks to certifying films.
“I have always said we need a certification board… Just certify a film. If the film has adult content then give XXX certificate so that kids don’t watch it,” she added.
