Mumbai - Filmmaker Shyam Benegal, who heads the Government-appointed panel to revamp CBFC has suggested a new category -- 'Adult with Caution' or 'A/C for films with excessive adult content in his recommendations.
Benegal, who has directed award-winning movies like Bhumika, Mandi and Nishant, however, said the committee is yet to submit a final report. "We have submitted an interim report to the Government, the details of which cannot be revealed. Yes, we have mooted a new category 'Adult with Caution' or 'A/C' for certification of films with excessive adult content," Benegal said.
"We have suggested two other categories: Under U/A -- U/A 12+ and U/A 15+. I can't reveal too much. There is another report that we will submit in three-four days. The Government will take the final call. It is not fair to say anything on the suggestions as it is premature," he said.
Benegal said the report would be ready "well before June 20", the last date of submission.
In January this year, the Government constituted a committee headed by Benegal to look into the revamping of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) which has been mired in controversies.
