JD producer-director has written an open letter to the newly-appointed Chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Prasoon Joshi, urging him to improve the working of the CBFC, and make it easy for new film producers and directors.
An emotional letter to Prasoon Joshi, Shailendra Pandey has written that he had applied for the censor clearance of the film’s trailer/promo on 6 September, but it has not been done till now. The CBFC Website mentioned on 14 September that the promo-trailer had been rejected by the Chairman. The reason for this decision was not mentioned. Pandey met officials of the CBFC and also Prasoon Joshi, but to no avail. Now it is just two days before the film is released in cinema halls, and its trailers/promos have not been shown on television.
getting the trailer/promo censored, I came to know that the procedure is now online, and I was happy that this work would be done quickly in a transparent manner. But I was wrong. It took over a month for getting the registration done, and that too with great difficulty. I had to make several phone calls, and met too many people. I thought now the trailer/promo would be censored.
