Nandita Das bats for rating system in certifying filmson May 28, 2016 at 8:31 am
Actor and director Nandita Das does not like the arbitrary process of the censorship board, but prefers the movie rating system.
“Censorship is a very dangerous tool for 5-6 people decide which two million Indians should see. You may not like something, I like, what I like, someone does not like. We have to trust people, so that we can collectively decide what is wrong and what is right.
“Anyway everything is available on the Internet. That is why remodeling censorship, Shyam Benegal was formed and his team. I hope that the rating system is there, so there five individuals randomly decide what it is right and what is wrong, “Nandita told a roundtable at the Festival Kashish.
