    Amitabh Bachchan has supported the team of Udta Punjab and said that the Censor Board should not try to kill the creativity.

    During the promotions of his film Te3n, Amitabh Bachchan told a daily, "Don't try to kill creativity. I think we all must have freedom to create because we are in this creative field. All we have [is] our soul to be able to create. When you kill creativity, you kill our soul and that will be detrimental to the profession.''

    Amitabh Bachchan further added, "If there was a delay [in releasing the film] it was unfortunate. The only problem is that the censor caution of filmmaking comes at a time of release, when everything is set up - distribution, theatre, publicity marketing...At that point if there is an obstacle... it sets you back. I hope that we can devise a system where there is certification rather than censor.''
