New Indian censor board chairman, Pahlaj Nihalani has spoken out about adult content online being so easily accessible by young children.
In an interview with The Hindu, Nihalani said he wanted to bring change to the way it censors content in films, “The censor board is very liberal. But what is the modern generation watching? We are giving them the license to see anything. How is this projecting our culture? There are free channels for all this. But this is cinema. Everything is free online and as you can see the youth is misusing it. Even for the online platform, I feel there should be rules and without censorship material should not be uploaded.”
He added, “I’m talking about the material that is uploaded. For instance, take Sunny Leone. We accepted her as an artist. And with her popularity, everybody, from school kids to grown ups, have watched her sites (adult films). People are paying money to watch her. How can there be tolerance for all this? What will the new generation learn?”
