Amid a raging row over ‘Udta Punjab’, Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday said movie certification norms have to be liberal and “some very radical changes” will be announced over the next few days.
In his first comments on the row sparked by cuts sought by Central Board of Film Certification on Udta Punjab, a film that portrays the problem of drug addiction in the state, he said, “I won’t say its overboard. I don’t know this case because I have not seen this film in question.”
Stating that he was “not satisfied” with the existing system of film certification, Jaitley said there are some changes that are about be made.
“There is a well documented report by Shyam Benegal, the first part which has come to me which is under consideration. Over the next few days we are going to announce some very radical changes in that,” he said.
