Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, and John Abraham’s Pathaan started its historic and record-breaking journey on January 25. Raima Sen can’t wait to watch Pathaan. By her admission, she has been a Shah Rukh Khan fan since she was young and the actress is well aware of the wave that the film has created. “I am yet to watch it. I am a Shah Rukh Khan fan. I’ve grown up watching his films. I know it’s making waves I will watch it as soon as I can,” she said. 

Meanwhile, Raima is well aware of the controversy that was created around the film, especially after the release of its first song Besharam Rang. She believes it was ‘completely unnecessary’. “I think the controversy was blown out of proportion and some people made a mountain out of a molehill. It makes no sense,” the actress said. 

Talking about the ‘boycott culture’, Raima said, “People should enjoy films. Films are made for entertainment only and not to hurt anyone’s sentiments.” 

Meanwhile, Raima also pointed out that censorship on OTT will not help the medium. “I don’t think there should be any censorship on OTT. That’s what makes it different from films. There are options for parental control of OTT platforms and one can keep children away from unsuitable content. OTT shows are supposed to be made without fear and that’s what makes them different from films. If that freedom is taken away from them then there will be no uniqueness. However, I am not so sure about the nudity part. I will not be very comfortable watching nudity on OTT and I don’t know if there should be any restrictions on it,” the actress said. 

Raima’s web series Roktokorobi, which also features Vikram Chatterjee and others, will be dropped on February 3 on Zee5.
