Censor Board stifles my freedom: Kamal Haasan

New Delhi: Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan says he has an ongoing struggle against the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to achieve creative freedom.

The 60-year-old actor, whose 2013 film `Vishwaroopam' was initially banned in Tamil Nadu for 15 days and saw a release only after muting certain scenes, has always voiced his reservations about the censor board guidelines.

Haasan, however, clarified that he holds nothing against the people in the board and called CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani a "friend".

Mumbai - South superstar Kamal Haasan feels writers usually don`t script roles for older actors but its time they took on the mantle.

"Writers do not write roles for older people... They always write for younger people so we all try to look young. But times are changing... Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) is a great example, so I know I have another 15 years," Haasan said at an event here.
