The adult comedy film Grand Masti, which became one of the most successful films of 2013 despite having its share of issues with the Censor Board, is now in trouble again. Of late, CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has been very strict, almost at a draconian level. A lot of movies faced certification troubles in the recent times. Now, Board has gone one step further.
The Board has refused to let Grand Masti be screened on television.
Rakesh Kumar, CEO of CBFC, said “If you have content like Grand Masti, I wonder how much would remain after we clip. I have been upset with the kind of films that are being made these days. I will make sure that films like Grand Masti are not aired on the television at any time slot.”
When pointed out that the film did really well at the box office, Mr. Kumar said “Even pornography has a good market and but it can’t be allowed to be viewed on television sets.”
This is what happens when wing-nuts are given prominent positions.. What say you folks?
