Censor Board to mandate warnings for movies shot in Delhi

08, Nov 2016 By punvendra

New Delhi. Censor board has introduced new warning rules for movies which are shot in Delhi. According to the guidelines, scene should contain a written warning saying “Living in Delhi is injurious to health”. This will be introduced because recent research has shown the harmful levels of air pollution in Delhi inhaling which is at par with smoking cigarettes.

Detailed guidelines says maximum allowed scene length will depend upon the breath taken by the actors with an exception made when mask is used. On hearing this, Salman Khan has shifted two of his films to Delhi so that his body double can shoot rest of the films with mask on. John Abraham and Katrina Kaif also expressed happiness (without showing it) about the decision by commenting that addition of masks will not affect their acting in any way.

Central Board of Film Certification chairperson Pahlaj said that after the success of warnings about smoking, we have developed a plan which will be rolled out in different phases to educate dumb audiences. We are also planning to sign MoU with Ministry of Health to carry out next phase of this plan.

The later phases of this plan includes talks with Ministry of External affairs to come up with guidelines for the scenes which feature Pakistani Artists. The proposed warning will say – “Watching this scene is Unpatriotic”.
