Vidya ex­plains her job as a CBFC board mem­ber

Khaleej Times - City Times - - YOUR DAILY DOSE OF BOLLYWOOD -

“As a board mem­ber there is not that much work. Peo­ple are not aware as to how the CBFC (Cen­tral Board of Film Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion) works. Ev­ery­one keeps ask­ing me if I watch movies all the time. But there are var­i­ous steps to it. There is an ex­am­in­ing com­mit­tee which is com­prised of peo­ple from dif­fer­ent walks of lives - it could be a teacher, doc­tor any­one. They watch the movie and then cer­tify it. If that cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is not ac­cept­able to the di­rec­tor or a pro­ducer then it is for­warded to the re­vis­ing com­mit­tee. The re­vis­ing com­mit­tee is where we come in. One mem­ber of our com­mit­tee once again watches the movie with a dif­fer­ent panel, com­pris­ing of peo­ple from dif­fer­ent walks of life, but dif­fer­ent from the pre­vi­ous mem­bers of the ex­am­in­ing com­mit­tee. And then, we sort of de­cide whether to go with the rec­om­mended cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or give it a fresh one. So, I have only watched two films so far as a board mem­ber. It is not that much of work but what­ever lit­tle work that I have done, I am en­joy­ing the process and learn­ing a lot from it.”
