“I don’t know if they are taking it lightly, but this is some kind of misplaced notion. A filmmaker is a storyteller and you cannot curb somebody’s desire to tell a story. That’s not fair. We should be proud of filmmakers such as Sanjay sir and Mani (Ratnam) sir and give them chance to make films because they create cinematic history,” she stated.
Aditi, who will be seen playing a pivotal role in the period drama, said that she finds it difficult to understand such violent attacks. “I find it difficult to understand the reason behind such violence and curbing freedom of expression.”
The 30-year-old actress is of the opinion that such attacks can be curbed only if everybody united against it. “I think more people should come together, and not let bullies harm us. This way, nothing can come in our way of making good films. There is so much power in believing in the other person’s vision and standing by him or her. There is great energy in that and if we do that, hopefully we will stop becoming soft targets. ”
“Ultimately, we are artists and we don’t want to scream and shout at anybody. We also want love. We are creating something [films] with so much passion and we don’t want to be subjected to violence,” she added.
