Actress Preeti Gupta, who was recently in news for the wrong reasons, has finally opened up about the controversy surrounding the leak of her nude photos and expressed her anger against the miscreants.

Preeti Gupta, who made her acting debut with "Mere Haule Dost" in 2013, featured in director Raj Amit Kumar's 2014 movie "Unfreedom", but the film was banned as it was about a lesbian couple.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, Preeti Gupta spoke about the controversy and said the leak is violation of privacy and it should banned instead of her film "Unfreedom".

"It's true that the actors are vulnerable, and I am actually very angry about it. It's bizarre and a violation of privacy. It's not cool, and if there is anything to be banned, it's such kind of things," Preeti told HT.

Preeti Gupta apparently admitted that the nude photos, which were leaked online, were part of her film "Unfreedom". She says that it is not easy to shoot such scenes. "Shooting such scenes needs dedication and discipline. It's very challenging," HT quoted her as saying.

"The concept of the film made sense to me and that's why we decided to show the truth of the situation. Ultimately, we were trying to recreate two hours of reality. Our intention is not to titillate but to show you the truth. It needs courage," the actress added.

Preeti Gupta blasted the authorities for banning "Unfreedom". She says it is a very significant film as it is an attempt to show a case of homosexuality in the lower and middle class segment of the society. The purpose of the film should not be ignored and the audience should be allowed to watch it.

"I find the ban very ridiculous, why should anything be banned? Don't you trust the audience's intelligence? One needs to watch the film to get the message, no? See, we are all adults and we should be given the choice to judge the content of a film. Homosexuality is very natural, what's so different about it?" she added.
