Censor Board issues list of cuss words banned from films !

New Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani has ordered that a list of 36 Hindi and English swear words be banned from films. The list that was sent to officials from the Central Board of Film Certification also ordered the deletion of 'violence against women', words with a 'double-meaning', use of the word Bombay, and a ban on glorifying bloodshed. Filmmakers have criticised the order as Censor Board member Ashoke Pandit lead the critics by calling the order a killer of creativity. Pandit stated that film industry representatives are planning to take up the matter with the Information & Broadcasting Ministry. He said the move is against the freedom and creative liberty of filmmakers. Pandit and other members of the Certification Board also plan to raise the issue at a Board meeting next week.
