'Shahid's business was jeopardized because of CBFC'

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta, who made the critically-acclaimed film Shahid, says his film suffered losses because the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) granted the film ‘A’ certificate. He also accused the CBFC of double standards. 

‘Filed a RTI about U/A certificate to Ram Leela. Have nothing against Ram Leela and Madras Cafe. It is about CBFC discriminating against my film when granting it the A certificate. Madras Cafe has scenes of violence and these are quite graphic. Yet it was granted a U/A certificate. What was so violent about Shahid?’ Meha tweeted.

‘Here is the reason given by CBFC for the U/A to Ram Leela. "Since the film was given U/A certificate ie The scenes of kissing and action were allowed with parental guidance. 'UA certificate itself cautions the parents that there may be certain visuals which may or may not like to see their children below 12 years of age. Accordingly, the committee decided to give a 'UA' certificate. Many films in the past which were certified as 'UA' has visuals of action and kissing." Shahid had no kissing, had very little violence and we offered to replace / mute expletives. Yet we were told it had to get a 'A' certificate,’ he continued.

‘The CBFC cannot pretend to be liberal and strict based on criteria best known to them. My film's business was jeopardized because of CBFC. The outdated cinematograph act is strictly applicable to films without stars or big budgets. For others the CBFC is liberal and broad-minded. Shahid deserved a U/A certificate and a tax free status. It is an important story. Instead it had an 'A' certificate and overpriced tickets. Discrimination is a function of financial muscle. The CBFC and its selective liberalism is testimony to that. I am filing many RTIs for films certified by CBFC in 2013. CBFC MUST BE EXPOSED for its double standards. Any suggestions for films?’ he added.
