    The producers of Rockstar toldHeadlines Today on Monday that they have decided to blur a flag that reads "Free Tibet" to avoid any controversy.There have not been too many Bollywood films, which have taken a stand on a sensitive political issue like Tibet. Ranbir Kapoorand Nargis Fakhri starrerRockstar ran into trouble over the flag.The Censor Board had also told the producers that if they wanted a U/A certification, they would have to mute the swear words and not just beep them out. The main character, played by Ranbir, apparently uses a lot of swear words. The Censor Board had told the producers that the film would get an A certificate if it did not mute the swear words.The film is slated for release on November 11 and the producers complied with the Censor Board's demands as they did not want to risk any delay in the release.Imtiaz Ali's film Rockstar has been making waves as its songs have already become hits.

    So, we are a democracy that is ready to forfeit freedom of speech to please a communist regime.
