Bejoy Nambiar, the filmmaker known for movies like Shaitaan and David, recently slammed the censor board for being “ridiculous.” It’s no secret that there’s a lot of chatter over the censor board happenings, with various scenes being cut from films, sometimes arbitrarily. And many people are now stepping up to speak about the issue, including Bejoy, who told IANS:
Some ridiculous things are happening in the censor board. I think it’s high time we take a uniform decision about what kind of content we should be allowed to watch. If this kind of discussion is consistently happening (what and what not to allow), it means there is definitely a problem… which has not happened earlier. It’s high time we get a certificate rating like we have in the west.
Nambiar is also the director for Wazir, which is due for release soon.
