The ‘Queen’ actress said that the censor board is bullying filmmakers and called for an end to “parental attitude towards the audience”.

Ranaut said that her friends and people she has closely worked with seem extremely disturbed with the way things are and they feel bullied.

The actress recalled how ‘Queen’ had run into trouble with the CBFC over women’s undergarments, with the CBFC blurring a bra because they found it vulgar, according to Ranaut.

Our director was furious about it. We are artistes... We see props as they are. A woman’s bra is not a danger to the society

The actress on 9 June received the ‘CNN-News18 Indian of the Year, 2015 - Special Achievement’ award in New Delhi.
