While the first two days were smoothe, starting today, the Censor Board intends to carry out flash inspections in theatres across India to check on the content accompanying the movie. It is not the content in the movie that they are keeping a check on, but the commercial ads playing which have to be closely monitored.
Talking about it, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani asserted, “In the days preceding the release of ‘Baahubali 2’, we’ve received requests to certify close to 90-100 ads to be screened with the film. We’ve never in the history of the CBFC’s existence received so many ads for screening with a feature film. Each one of the ads had to be viewed by all the members of the Censor Board and certified.”
“Some enterprising product-peddlers may think they can slip their ads in without censor certification into theatres showing ‘Baahubali 2’. We’ll be checking randomly to see no ads are screened without censor certification,” added Nihalani before signing off.(Also read: Sathyaraj apologises to Kannadigas ahead of 'Baahubali 2' release)CREDITS: The DNA
