Emraan Hashmi may have flourished as a serial kisser in the early 2000 but he may find it difficult to exhibit his kissing skills onscreen today given the ultra conservative ways of the censor board.
Putting forth his views on the ‘sanskari’ censor board, Emraan Hashmi said, “I don’t see films running on just kissing. I am more concerned about the integral content getting snipped out of it due to censors. The kiss may or may not be integral to the film. There has to be some creative freedom to approach the film the way we want to and say it all without having these things like different moralistic views and holier than thou stuff thrown in. Saying that we have to snip this out is like going back to the dark ages when we all are looking to move forward.”
Emraan however stressed that a great story will work irrespective of how the censor snips it. “If it’s a great story, the film will do well despite what cuts have been enforced.”
