It has come as a sigh of relief for filmmakers that the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Rajyavardhan Rathore has now announced that Bollywood will not be required to follow the cuss word list made by the new chief of the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Pahlaj Nihalani. The decision came after certain reputed filmmakers decided to consult the Ministry of I&B after Pahlaj passed the order of banning cuss words from films.
Happy about the decision, Anurag took to Twitter to post about it saying, "Super meeting with the ministry & super initiative of the Govt to develop an interface directly with working professionals of Film industry." He further added, "Talked about everything from a ratings board to self regulation and left with a lot of hope and positivity."
Many filmmakers and Bollywood personalities were of the opinion that Pahlaj Nihalani's decision may hamper the creative freedom of writers and directors. Now, Minister Rathore has also promised that he will also look into other concerned matters including the reviewing of the Cinematograph Act of 1952.
