CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi  is aghast at members  of the Special Panel invited to view Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, who are now expressing displeasure over the  film’s certification.

Says Prasoon, “The role of Special Panel was only advisory in nature.Let’s be clear that role of the special panel was to give advice and add perspective to the CBFCs regular panel for which the CBC is appreciative and thankful.”

  However  the CBFC chief is  not  agreeable to members  of the Special Panel  claiming ownership  over the certification of Padmavati.

Says Prasoon, “The final decision stays with the CBFC Committee.The special panel were aware of this as well.In the decision of CBFC some parts of the advice do find reflection but as iterated the final decision for certification is with the CBFC committee”

    Prasoon stands by the  CBFC’s decision  on  Padmavati. “ The CBFC  has taken a pragmatic and balanced view. Unnecessary controversy should not be made out of it.”
