Censor board has become more liberal: Dibakar

Censor board has become more liberal: Dibakar
Even as many filmmakers feel the Central Board of Film Certification [CBFC] has become more strict about content, critically acclaimed director Dibakar Banerjee begs to differ. He says the board has now adopted a more liberal attitude.

‘I don’t think the censor board or the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has become tougher. I have seen them becoming more liberal,’ said Banerjee on the sidelines of the ongoing 12th Osian’s-Cinefan Film Festival.

Banerjee says his last film Shanghai was passed without any cuts, except just a voluntary cut.
Banerjee admits his films don’t cause a flutter at the box office, but says he feels content with audience reactions.

‘I have tried to construct out of personal experience. My films recover the money’.
After Shanghai, Banerjee revealed he is working on two scripts.
