Cinematography act was made way back in 1952, where item songs, sex, violence etc were not part of indian cinema. CBFC members felt that serious ammendments are needed for the rules now. As of now, CBFC gives only ‘A, U/A, U‘ certificates to movies.
The Censor Board of Film Certification which recently met in Mumbai had taken a radical decision. It has decided to give ‘A‘ certificate to all movies of all Indian languages, which have item songs. As per the new guidelines formed , these item songs need to be deleted while the movie is telecast on TV channels as only family viewable content is allowed on small screen. This radical decision is taken at CBFC meet in mumbai after feeling the heat of recent rape cases in the country.
