The Indian censor board has lifted the ban on re-certification of Adult films so that they can be screened on Television. The censor board has lifted this ban after many requests from the broadcasters and the filmmakers.
The CBFC had stopped the practice of modifying A certificate films for TV in January this year. Since then, the broadcasters and producers have been demanding to lift the ban.
The Chairperson of CBFC, Pahlaj Nihalani, said that the CBFC now allows producers who have films with ‘A’ certificate to make voluntarily cuts to the films for TV screening.
Satellite right is a major source of revenue for filmmakers and with this decision, even the films with A certificate can now be screened on TV. Filmmakers can earn some extra bucks by selling the satellite rights of A certificate films that were impossible to sell earlier.
