Movies intended to be aired on Indian television channels may soon have to seek Censor Board certificate afresh under new categories.
While movies, at present, are awarded certificate by the Censor Board under four categories -- U, UA, A and S – before their theatre release, films for TV viewing will be certified under new classification.
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry and the Censor Board are holding exhaustive discussions in this regard and are also seeking the views of the film fraternity, sources in the Ministry said.
Films, which have been already shown on television, will, however, not have to go through the process, they said, adding, suitable amendment in the Cinematography Act is also being contemplated.
The development comes in wake of the controversy generated last year following Sony Television's decision to show Vidya Balan starrer 'Dirty Picture'. The picture had to undergo several cuts before being aired.
The new move aims to put to rest any such controversies henceforth, sources said. Some producers, on the other hand, are learnt to be making two versions of their forthcoming ventures to play it safe nfollowing the Dirty Picture row -- one for the big screen and he other for TV viewing
