Govt to CBFC: tell producers to seek NOC for films on Army theme

Aug 02, 2020 13:13 IST

The Defence Ministry has written a letter to Censor Board, asking them to advise producers to seek a No Objection Certificate from the Ministry of Defence in order to portray themes and storylines related to the Armed Forces in films & shows. The letter states that producers are advised not to air content that distorts or hurts the sentiments of Armed Forces. The letter was shot off after the govt received complaints about the improper portrayal of Indian Army personnel and their uniform, in Ekta Kapoor's web series 'XXX Uncensored Season 2' on video-streaming platform ALT Balaji. Interestingly, the censor board does not have the mandate to regulate content on video-streaming platforms, its role is restricted to films released in theatres and TV channels.
