The Film & Television Producers Guild of India has approached the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting urging them to discourage unnecessary and frivolous litigations filed against the content of films that have already been certified by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
Mukesh Bhatt, President of the Producers Guild said, "Every second film goes into litigation because somebody for their personal publicity goes and files a PIL in any part of the country, thereby harassing the producer after the certification is done."
Bhatt has written a letter to Manish Tewari, Minister of Information & Broadcasting urging the ministry's intervention. He added, "We want to address the general problems that the industry is facing and how we can take things forward. Because the way we are continuing, instead of celebrating 100 years of cinema, we might as well write its obituary."
Bhatt confirmed that a meeting will be held with the I&B Ministry to address these issues some time next week.
