Leading filmmakers have come out against the central government’s move to amend the Cinematograph Act. Fefka also demanded that the central government back down from the decision. The Central Government’s Cinematograph Amendment Bill is a complete reversal of the existing film laws in the country. The new draft bill empowers the central government to re-examine films that have been censored. At present, the censor board gives permission for the screening of films in the country. The Central Government is not allowed to interfere in this matter. However, under the Cinematograph Amendment, the Central Government can intervene in the decision of the Censor Board.
