"I think it would be absolutely impossible to make Earth today [in 2017]. I don't think we'd get a big movie star to do it. But more than that, just the scale of it. And people are so vigilant about protecting anything that's Hindu. Even if we could shoot, it would never get through the censor board today. Not a chance in hell. I don't think it will be about the politics, it will be about a love scene."
-- Deepa Mehta
