CBFC just a rubber stamp, I & B ministry decides certification

Mumbai: Rapid initial developments in the Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) give direct hints of major changes in the policy So far the sources have confirmed that the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting have taken direct charge of certification to ensure that no movie is subject to radical or nominal cuts.  Apparently disgruntled producers have now taken I & B route to bypass the censor board.

“Many producers of films with objectionable content like Mastizaade, Kya Kool Hain Hum 3 and something called Miss Teacher which is a graphic story of a nymphomaniac teacher, have all been cleared due to the direct intervention of the I & B ministry”, CBFC’s reliable source said.

It also said that producers of mentioned films “complained” to the I & B ministry when the CBFC asked for cuts in the lurid and obscene content.

“These films were passed after the I & B ministry’s direct intervention. The CBFC has been told not to cut scenes or dialogues in these films. More and more filmmakers are running to the I &B ministry with complaints against CBFC’s cuts and getting them restored. The CBFC finds itself reduced to a helpless pawn.”
