Supreme Court refuses to revoke the CBFC certification of Adipurush

One of the petitions that were filed against Om Raut and the makers of Adipurush included an appeal to quash or cancel the certification by the CBFC for the film.

The petitioner submitted that the CBFC has not followed the guidelines required for the approval of films for public exhibition and therefore

the certification under Section 32 Section 5B of the Cinematography Act should be cancelled.

However, the Supreme Court refused to reason as to why the bench should look into things that have a prescribed method of obtaining a certificate under the Act

He asks if everyone will come to the Supreme Court for it and if they will have to scrutinize every little thing now.

The level of tolerance for films, books, paintings keeps on getting down. Now people are hurt maybe sometimes genuinely, maybe sometimes not
