The seventh day of the Jaipur Literature Festival was also a blast. Famous actor Manoj Bajpayee was one of the many special guests on this day. The actor spoke on many issues on the JLF stage. Among the issues that Manoj talked about were issues like censorship and villain’s role in OTT.
Speaking in favor of OTT content, Manoj Bajpayee said that there is all kinds of content here. But it is up to the audience to see him or not. He considered any form of censorship wrong.
Comparing the OTT platform to the railway station, Manoj Bajpayee said that everything is available here. There are all kinds of books, good and bad and obscene, like there are at the railway station. It is in the hands of the people to choose it. He further said that OTT has connected everyone from Kashmir to Kanyakumari today. People speaking different languages are also watching each other’s movies.
Manoj defended the OTT filmmakers and said that it is the responsibility of the parents to take care of the children. It is wrong to accuse the director. No one can be a bigger censor in Indian society than parents. There should be freedom for all types of content.
