I wish censorship was final authority: Karan Johar
Panaji: Filmmaker Karan Johar Monday said the government should help the movie industry by making censorship the final law -- especially for times when some people stage protests even after a film has received the green signal from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for release.
"I wish censorship was the final authority. I am fighting court cases that are ridiculous. I am still fighting a case for 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham'. I wish there was a ruling finally and with the current governance being so proactive, I hope this is one of the things they should look into and say that censorship is the final law.
"If it doesn't happen, filmmakers like me will be the soft target," Karan said during a session titled "An afternoon at Film Bazaar with Rajeev Masand" on the final day of Film Bazaar here Monday.
Karan was reportedly charged with insulting the National anthem in his 2001 directorial "Khabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham".
