Pahlaj Nihalani: Kahaani 2 handled sensitive issues maturely

Pahlaj Nihalani, also promises gales of change in the working of the board.


The chief of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Pahlaj Nihalani has a lot to glory about Sujoy Ghosh’s movie Kahaani 2, which was given a compassionate U/A certification in India, has been proficient with ‘15’ by its British foil. This means, in the United Kingdom, the film is fit for intake only for viewers above the age limit of 15, however in India, children of all ages can watch the picture, provided they are escorted by grownups.

The British Board of Film Certification had stated “allusions to child abuse” and “sturdy violence.” Pahlaj speaks, “We did make a memo of the strong violence and allusions to child abuse. However, we still decided to move with the U/A relatively than A (adults only) for Kahaani 2. The reason? Since we feel it addresses influential issues connected to the safety of females and children. We feel the subject of child cruelty must be open to kids in our society, as they are easy objectives. A strong movie like this makes a mature and sensible statement on women empowerment and adolescent abuse in an accountable way. We are proud to let children access to this movie.”

Pahlaj also assurances winds of change in the functioning of the board. “We are looking at a far more generous policy than previously; it is a sign of the altering times. Whether it is the dim, grim social realism of Kahaani 2, or the casual kissing in the movie Befikre, our strategies will try to reflect worldwide changes and tendencies.”

It also appears like the CBFC has forestalled Shyam Benegal’s board, chosen to bring improvements in the board’s workings. Pahlaj smiles, “I never know about that, but certainly, we at the CBFC are awfully looking at improvements in the certification strategy. At this point of time, we might soon even let pornography with an appropriate rating.”
