Information & Broadcasting ministry lashed censor board

Sharing is caring!

Sex comedies such as Mastizaade and Kya Kool Hai Hum 3, are being scrutinized by the Information & Broadcasting ministry over the amount of vulgarity shown in the trailers. The I&B ministry, has asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for an explanation, as to how such vulgar content has been passed under their watch.

The head of CBFC, Pahlaj Nihalani, has already sent an explanation to the I&B ministry as saying, “We are in a Catch-22 situation. Karo toh gaali, na karo toh gaali. When we were strict with the vulgarity quotient, we were called prudes. Sanskaari became a gaali. And to endorse obscenity was seen worthy of taali. So, we certified some films with scenes and dialogues that we would otherwise have never passed as they went against our guidelines.”
