Filmmaker Onir is upset with the censor board for not giving his National Award-winning-film I AM a U-certificate, without which it cannot be telecast on Doordarshan. This is in spite of his making the cuts demanded and he says he would like to challenge the decision. "Yes, I will. For me, its important that viewers get to see the film that won a National Award," Onir told IANS.
The story of I AM is based on four true stories dealing with sperm donation, gay rights, Kashmiri Pandits and child sex abuse.
The 43-year-old has also ridiculed Doordarshan's demand of an U-certificate, saying that a show like Satyamev Jayate, which discussed issus like child sex abuse and alcohalism gets a prime time slot but "I AM" has to fight for
