Mysore, Sep 19: Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce(KFCC) President and Kannada film actor Jayamala today said the Central Board of Film Certification(CBFC) should impose a single policy all over India.
Inaugurating a two-day seminar on 'Cinema and 'Cersorship organised by the CBFC Regional Office here, she said the censor board has separate policies for region-wise and issuing certification on that basis. The need of the hour was for a single policy, while issuing certificates to the films in the country, she added.
Ms Jayamala regretted that the film industry and the censor board often confronted with each other. It is time, they bury their hatchets and work in tandem, she said.
She said though the standard of films had deteriorated, there were exceptional movies. The number of producers were on the increse and people from other industries got attracted to the tinsel world, she added.
She emphasised the need for an academic touch to the films, as the producers neither possess knowledge of stories and script writing, nor the ability to market films in a sustained and phased manner.
She said the CBFC should chalk out rules and regulations in Kannada language to enable the producers to understand its policies in a crystal-clear manner.
She said the number of crime films were on the increase and the producers should take steps to curb violence in films. Films other than Kannada were more violence-prone and the board should take stringent measures to put an end to it, she added.
Ms Jayamala lauded the board for organising the seminar to create awareness in the film industry.
