Are we looking at a new censor certification mode whereby movies of high artistic quality and/or socially relevant content can easily be identified by the letter of the alphabet marked for certification?
Apparently a ‘Q’ for ‘Quality’ could be the future of meritorious films.
Says censor chief Pahlaj Nihalani, “If the censor board discourages films with a high sleaze content then it must also ensure that films of high merit like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan get immediately identified with the censor gradation.”
Pahlaj Nihalani strongly feels that films which promote high aesthetics and social values must be encouraged by the government . “And not just through censor certification, but also through an all-India tax exemption. A film like Sultan which has a strong message on beti bachao beti padhao and which promotes Indian sports and strong traditional values should not be made to ask for tax exemption from State to State. It should be granted all-India tax benefits so more people would be able to watch it.”
If sources from the government are to be believed, serious consideration is being given to encouraging quality-conscious mainstream Bollywood cinema with special censor certification and pan-India tax exemptions.
