I’m not fan of censorship: Vivek Oberoi

Mumbai, Nov 26 (IANS) Actor Vivek Oberoi says he does not believe in censorship and feels people have to be liberal with content.

“Honestly, I’m not a fan of censorship and I do not believe in it. I believe we have to proceed and progress through the time. I was asked by some people from government (about it), and this is the opinion I gave them,” he said at an event here.

The censor board has been in news of late as it snipped by half the length of a kiss in James Bond movie “Spectre”.

“I’m not saying that tomorrow people are going to show porn in theatres, but yes of course there has to be more liberalism with time. It is not good that we’re following the 1952 act, it is needed to upgrade. And that is a sign of a maturity,” he added.

Currently shooting for “Great Grand Masti”, Vivek spoke about his future project “Bank Chor” with Yash Raj Films, and said: “I was happy when Adi (Aditya Chopra) called me for the film. The film is exciting… mad. The director, Bumpy is very young and edgy and I think the film going to surprise people.”

With “Bank Chor”, Vivek is returning to Yash Raj Films several years after working with the banner in “Saathiya”.

“Bank Chor” is a comic thriller that tells the story of three people trying to rob a bank, and what happens when everything goes wrong and they’re accidentally caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas.

“Bank Chor” is directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil.
