Aamir Khan, the actor who is known as the perfectionist of our Bollywood industry finally spoke up on the job of Central Board of Film Certification that its work is to certify films not to censor them. He also added disappointedly that he hopes that things will change in the near future. The reason for releasing this statement was that recently the CBFC objected some scenes and use of cuss words in Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s upcoming movie Babumoshai Bandookbaaz and has asked for 48 cuts in the movie.
When the actor was being asked about what he thinks on if the censorship curbs the filmmaker from doing his job, he marked a question on the relevancy of censorship in today’s times. As far as his knowledge his concerned, he said that CBFC is only supposed to censor not to certify and grade which it is doing these days.He further said that that’s how we all should proceed and that’s even Mr Shayam Benegal also recommended. So hopefully things will get better soon. A few days ago, CBFC raised some issue on the content of the movie Jab Harry Met Sejal and also face a lot of criticism.
Then switching to other topic, the actor spoke about his upcoming production movie Secret Superstar which has been in the headlines for some days now due to its ever attractive poster featuring a beautiful girl. The movie features Zaira Wasim, Meher Vij and Amir Khan himself in the lead roles. The movie revolves around the story of a child who aspires to become a singer. Recently, there was a debate about the kids in the reality shows where a lot of people gave their opinion that children should not be subjected to such platforms as they are getting away from their childhood.
The reason behind such discussions is that in Aamir Khan’s upcoming movie, he is seen judging a show like this. When asked about his views on the matter, Aamir said, “Honestly, I haven’t seen those reality shows. But it cuts both ways (referring to kids getting platform to show their talent and they shouldn’t be overexposed).” He also added that the kids of todays’ time are definitely talented but at the same time, in the race of showing their talent and being successful in such a young age, they become aggressive and rob off their childhood completely.
