Censor’s damaging us, get a rating system: Abhishek Kapoor



Filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor feels it is high time to create a definite rating system for films, so that a demarcation between sleaze and adult content can be made for the convenience of filmmakers and viewers.

In the current scenario, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) categorises both adult and sleazy content under one umbrella of ‘A’ certificate. Abhishek, the director of films like Rock On!! and Kai Po Che! suggests that “we can always put a rating system where we can distinguish between a good film and a sleazy film. A lot of people have been discussing this because the censor thing is damaging us”.

“No one realises that it’s like a bottleneck for such a big industry, and we have to figure this out keeping in mind that you don’t want to offend the sensibilities,” he adds.

“There should be a bifurcation as to what can be shown in adult certification and what can be shown on television or what cannot be shown on television, so that one can come up with some other certification,” says the director. he added.
