Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, whose long-drawn-out fight with the Central Board of Film Certification over Udta Punjab made recent headlines, is set to deliver a masterclass on censorship to students and cinema alike in Australia.
The session will be held at the upcoming Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.
The festival, which will be attended by more Bollywood celebrities including Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Richa Chadha and Radhika Apte, will begin on August 11 in Melbourne.
“I can put forth my point of view and talk about how censorship is so pointless in the day and age of the internet. I am excited as this is my first time there and I am really looking forward to interacting with the students,” Kashyap said in a statement.
