Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who had a long battle with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), popularly known as the censor board, recently over Udta Punjab (2016), is set to deliver a masterclass on censorship to students and cinema lovers alike in Australia.

The masterclass will be held at the upcoming Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. The festival, which will be attended by more Hindi film personalities like Rishi Kapoor, Fawad Khan, Richa Chadha and Radhika Apte, will begin on 11 August in Melbourne.

"I can put forth my point of view and talk about how censorship is so pointless in the day and age of the internet," Kashyap said in a statement. "I am excited as this is my first time there and I am really looking forward to interacting with the students."
