Bhandarkar, Kareena slam censor board for TV ban on A-films

Mumbai: Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is disappointed with the censor board's decision to ban the screening of adult films on television. He feels producers will lose a lot of money due to this.

“This is wrong, as the major part of the revenue we get is from the satellite channels. Obviously the producers will lose a lot of money. Moreover, we can't make all the movies with U/A or U certificate,” Bhandarkar said on Tuesday.
He said the Film &Television Producers Guild of India is already working on the modalities. “I am sure it will be resolved very soon.”

The filmmaker was in Gurgaon to promote his upcoming film, Heroine, with its lead actress, Kareena Kapoor. The film delves into the behind-the-scenes life of an actress in the Indian film industry. It also features Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda.

Kapoor has also raised objection to the censor board decision.

“It's wrong, because I feel that every film is a different kind of film. We make different genres of films, with different directors. Producers invest because they feel that the film has something,” said Kapoor.

“For me, there is nothing like an A or U/A film certificate. You switch to other channels like Star World and Star Movies and they have wild scenes too.”
