So­ci­ety won’t move for­ward with film polic­ing, says Nan­dita Das

Muscat Daily - - FEATURES -

Ac­tor-direc­tor Nan­dita Das says so­ci­ety will not move for­ward if polic­ing like what In­dia’s Cen­tral Board of Film Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion (CBFC) is do­ing con­tin­ues.

Nan­dita had faced prob­lems from the cen­sor board for her film Fi­raaq. Of late, the CBFC has or­dered 48 cuts in Nawazud­din Sid­diqui's Babu­moshai Ban­dook­baaz.

"I don't know how a few peo­ple in their com­mit­tee can de­cide what is good and what is bad for the view­ing of en­tire na­tion. I feel if we con­tinue to do such kind of polic­ing, then so­ci­ety will not move for­ward. To­day on the In­ter­net, you can see what­ever you want, so it's a kind of hypocrisy as you are ban­ning it of­fi­cially, but we can see it on In­ter­net or see a pi­rated ver­sion of it. So, I feel there is no use of it."

Nan­dita was speak­ing at a panel dis­cus­sion at Go­drej Club In­dia Lab Mu­seum in Mumbai.
