ACTRESS RAVEENA TANDON SEEKS CHANGES IN OUTDATED CBFC RULES :

Actress Raveena Tandon whose upcoming film ‘Maatr’ has landed in trouble with the censor board says it is bound by ancient guidelines.  “CBFC is bound by certain laws that were made several years ago … Time has come for a change as we talk about progressive India. So there is a need for amendment in laws,” she told.   “If we get ‘A’ certificate for the film then why there are so many cuts? It’s like the audience would not understand what we are trying to show. It’s time that we change the laws as per today’s time,” she said.  “The plus-point is CBFC believes in (the film’s) message as statistically crime against women is on the rise. ‘Maatr’ has a strong message and CBFC believes a film like this should be shown to people, but their hands are tied,” she said.   At the same time the National Award-winning actress said she failed to understand why Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) raised objections.  “I can count films whose sense of humour was vulgar but there was no objection made. Now with ‘Maatr’, when we are showing the reality, objections are being raised and it is surprising,” she said.   The Times of India : 18th. Apr,17
