Change in censorship laws is need of the hour: Raveena

Change in censorship laws is need of the hour: Raveena

New Delhi, Apr 18 (UNI) Even as her film 'Maatr' is stuck with the Censor Board over its certification, Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon says change in censorship laws is need of the hour. 'I understand that the CBFC is also bound by laws that go back to the 1970s. We have gone ahead, but they are still following the same law. Perhaps, there comes the problem. There is a need for law amendment,' Raveena told reporters at the trailer launch of the film last evening. Directed by Ashtar Sayed, 'Maatr' deals with rape and violence against women in the Indian society The film is stuck with the censor board over its content. Speaking on the issue, Raveena said, 'I think more than the scenes, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has a problem with the language that has been used in the film.' On the censor board objections to the film, Raveena said, 'I do not understand why… as we attempted to show a mirror to the society.' Calling for a change in the laws, she said, 'it is not accepted how even after getting an ‘A’ certification, a film goes through so many cuts… that dilutes the matter'. Refusing to call the film as her comeback, the actress said,'I used to work in 30 films in a year during the early stage of my career. But now I have reached a point where I will do films that I completely believe in and I have no idea what I am doing next after ‘Maatr‘. So how many times should I make my comeback? I really do not like using that word.' Raveena said the purpose behind making the film is to create awareness among the audience. 'Intention behind 'Maatr' is not commercial success but to spread a message of crime against women. This is the need of the hour, where people should start changing their mindset about women and take action against such criminals instead of shaming the victims based on the length of their clothes,' she said.
