CBFC chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani is in the news for reports of ‘Q' certification for films that have quality and deliver a message.

Like previous CBFC chairpersons, Pahlaj Nihalani is also under scanner for obstructing ‘creativity' and introducing ‘sanskar' (doing moral policing) on movies coming for certification.

Clearing the air on the ‘Q' certification, Pahlaj Nihalani says it's a recommendation and not a suggestion. He says, “Let me make it clear, the Q certification is not a certification, it's a suggestion, as we give ‘U' certificate to films for universal viewing, quality films that promote Indian ethos, culture and give good message should come under ‘Q' category and should be made tax free all over.”

It's my humble suggestion to the central and the state government. Speaking as an individual more than a producer and chairperson of CBFC, Pahlaj Nihalani says, “Like various State Government give incentives to producers to shoot in their states and government declares tax free to movies winning national awards and/or give good message like NEERJA, this recommendation will motivate filmmakers to make good quality content which is likely to be tax free if it falls in the ‘Q' parameter'.'

Pahlaj Nihali feels that since CBFC is under scanner for the so called discouragement on ‘freedom' that are high on sleaze, this could work as a boon for new age filmmakers/and or filmmakers with limited budget who even after all the hardships fail to get audience in theaters that charge around 250 rupees or a ticket in major cities, their movies will get tax free and will find more audience.”

This will motivate filmmakers to drop on sensationalisms – like sex, vulgarity which is growing in films and look for quality in films.
