Coming down heavily on the Censor Board, which recently stoked controversy by banning some objectionable words, actor Aamir Khan today said he is totally against banning any kind of material in media or films.
“I am totally against banning any kind of material. When the I&B minister spoke to us, he also clarified that actually the ministry has no such list of cuss words. It’s a certification board and not the censor board. It was nice to hear that,” the Bollywood superstar said at Ficci-Frames, an annual jamboree of media and entertainment industry, that began here today.
There were reports that the recently appointed Censor Board chairman Pahlaj Nihalani had revived a 2003 order to ban a list of 28 objectionable or cuss words, including Bombay in any movies or documentaries.
