Ridiculous things happening in censor board: Bejoy Nambiar

Mumbai, Dec 30 (IANS) Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar, who feels “ridiculous things” are happening in the censor board, says there needs to be uniformity regarding censorship of content in Indian cinema.

Asked about his views on the strictness of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Nambiar said: “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,” he added.

Bejoy is currently busy promoting his film “Wazir”, which has megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar.

He says working with stars has its pros and cons.

“They come with an aura which makes things easy, but the disadvantage is that you have to make sure that the story complements the aura well. Certain stars might be huge, but they won’t fit the part… So that’s also an easy trap to fall into,” he added.
