The director of Ugly is not ready to add the warning ‘Smoking is injurious to health’ in all the scenes of his film where the characters have been shown smoking. The film maker approached the Bombay High Court against the Censor Board, after it objected to the exclusion of the anti-smoking disclaimer in his upcoming film ‘Ugly’, says he is a socially responsible filmmaker and will fight till the end to secure justice in the matter.
“We have not used this thing warning message for our film so we have been denied the certificate. This warning destroys the aesthetic value of a film and distracts audience from the movie thus ruining the experience of watching a film. It is my film and my creativity and I don’t want to destroy it following a rule that does not make sense to me,” he told reporters here at a press conference.
