Freedom of expression is now only for bullies: Director Kamal

Director Kamal whose controversial Aami got a release on Friday in theaters is a relieved man but has expressed his concern on freedom of expression, to which he said, “Not just against cinema, but all arts — painting, literature, theatre. But cinema will be targeted more for the very simple reason that it is more visible. Cinema is, therefore, the most convenient medium to target and get noticed.” On freedom of expression, the director added, “It is now only for bullies. The more you shout about freedom of expression, the stronger the chances of oppressing the voices that actually stand for that freedom. My cinema has been targeted earlier also. I am not scared to have my say, no matter what happens.”
