In the wake of the 'Udta Punjab' censorship controversy, now superstar Salman Khan opens up and puts forward his opinion loud and clear about the entire CBFC controversy. He feels more categories should be created for clearing films in the 'adult' segment.
"There are certain cuts given for U/A and U certificate and some cuts in A certificate films. Put XX, XXX (to 'A' certificate films) for people, who come to see that kind of films as they are aware about what is there in it," Salman told in an interview.
Recently, the makers of Udta Punjab were embroiled in a battle with CBFC over the number of cuts in the Shahid Kapoor-Alia Bhatt starrer. The makers got a lot of support from the industry and even the court ruled in their favour.
Salman's Bajrangi Bhaijaan had also run into trouble with the censor board and some religious organisations, who objected to the title.
"In 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' case, we were asked to change the title. We were like if the film was (based) in Maharashtra then it would be 'Bajrangi Bhau', in UP 'Bajrangi Bhaiya' and in Punjab 'Bajrangi Paaji'. But the character is going to Pakistan so it is called 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'," the 50-year-old star said.
The CBFC gave U/A certificate to the Kabir Khan-directed film, where Salman played the role of an ardent devotee of Hanuman, who embarks on a journey to reunite a mute six-year old girl (Harshali Malhotra) with her parents in Pakistan.
