Censor Board Withdraws List Of Cuss Words

CBFC, Small Films, Cuts

The Central Board Of Film Certification has withdrawn the controversial list of cuss words that was circulated soon after Pahlaj Nihalani took over as the Board’s chairperson. The list has been withdrawn after a majority of members voted against it, said a PTI report.

Sources said the issue was discussed in a meeting of the Board held on Friday, July 31, 2015, in Mumbai, where a large majority of the members felt that rather than banning such words, they should be looked at the context they are used in. The controversial list banning the use of “objectionable” and “abusive” words was held by the censor board after a massive controversy broke out and it was felt that more consultation was required.
