Shoojit rubbishes reports of ban order on Madras Cafe

Completely rubbishing a report in a section of the media claiming that Madras Cafe had been screened on Sunday for pro-Tamil political outfits, director Shoojir Sircar says these are attempts by protestors to protest against a film they haven't seen.

Protests Shoojit, "I am shocked to read that pro-Tamil organizations have asked for a ban on our film after seeing it. First of all, we haven't shown the film to anyone as yet, so where is there a question of them deciding that Madras Cafe is anti-Tamilians? I am very concerned about the protestors' concerns. But they haven't seen the film. Once they do so I am confident their doubts would be laid to rest."

Shoojit Sircar is a little distressed by the controversies surrounding Madras Cafe.

Says Shoojit in exasperation, "India should grow up and allow filmmakers to make political thrillers like the ones in the West without various organizations breathing down our necks. It is very frustrating for an artiste when the second-largest democracy in the world behaves like a banana republic. If the world can move on, why can't we? Hollywood has made many worthy political films. Why can't we? Also, we have the democratically chosen censor board to control the content. I was surprised when the censor board had passed Vickey Donor with no cuts. There are people in the censor board who know their job.
