“As an artist, it’s great if you have complete freedom of expression, but censorship is also important. It’s just about finding the right balance, which is not an easy thing to do. It’s a constant struggle and there’s no perfect way to do it,” said Aditya at a fashion show organized by designer Manish Malhotra, where he and his “Fitoor” co-star Katrina Kaif walked the ramp.

“So there’s going to be a give and take, there’s going to be some people who might think it is right, or wrong but the endeavour is to find the right balance.. I hope we’re getting there,” he added.

The censor board helmed by Pahlaj Nihalani has been constantly in the news for its decisions and the problems filmmakers and actors have with it. But actors, directors and other performers have also been under attack for some of the content they create.

This debate has been triggered by the recent incident, where comedian Kiku Sharda was arrested for imitating Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim.

On Kiku Sharda, Aditya tried to avoid making a statement. “I’m not well-informed to make a completely informed point of view on it. It’s quite a sensitive topic, so without having the necessary know-how, it’s not necessary to make a comment like that.”
