To Avoid Any Leakages Online Censorboard Bans Censor Copies On DVDs


With ‘Censor Copies’  of recent  films like Udta Punjab and Great Grand Masti being “leaked” on the internet the Censor Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) has taken a decision to ban the submission of films on the DVD format for censor certification.

Films now have to be submitted to the CBFC  on the DCP format(digital cinema projection).

Says censor chief Pahlaj Nihalani, “We had so many complaints about dvd prints marked ‘censor copy’ being  leaked online.Firstly the  censor copy was made by the producers, not us.So the leakage could be sourced to any place from the point where the producers make copies. But we stopped that procedure. We now watch films on the digital format .So there is no censor copy made for us.”

So why are online leakages of some recent film seen to carry the ‘Censor Copy’ watermark?

“Not for us. But the  Film Certificate Appellate Tribunal, known as the Tribunal, still requires a dvd copy,” informs Nihalani.
