RGV lashes out at the Government’s decision

Ram Gopal Varma, in a series of tweets, has criticized the ban of porn websites in India. RGV said that the move is regressive and banning porn sites is not a solution against sexual crimes.

“History proved it multiple times that if anytime anything is banned it will just gather strength in the underground. Any deprivation of personal liberty of an individual by a government amounts to a regression of social progress of that country. It’s a proven fact by international surveys that instead of fuelling sexual crimes porn actually provides safer outlet for sexual repression,” he tweeted.

The ‘Satya’ director feels government should rather try to make sure the content does not go in wrong direction. Meanwhile, RGV’s forthcoming film ‘Secret’ shooting is currently progressing at a brisk pace which also features Tisca Chopra and Makrand Deshpande in pivotal roles. This film is slated to hit the screens in 2015.
