Censor Board clears Prakash Jha's film on JP without cuts

October 30, 2004 16:26 IST

A controversial documentary film on Loknayak Jaiprakash Narayan, whose telecast was withheld by Prasar Bharti, has been cleared by the Censor Board "without a single cut," according to the film's director Prakash Jha.

"We
received a Censor Board certificate yesterday. The board has cleared my film without a single cut," Jha said.

The certificate, Jha said, clearly shows that the film is based on the life of Jaiprakash and does not adhere to any ideological preference.

He said he would now be writing a letter to Prasar Bharti informing them about the Censor Board's decision.

"Now that the Censor Board has approved the film I do not think there should be any reason why the film cannot be
aired by Prasar Bharti," he said.

"We had applied for Censor Board certificate in order to help us enter the film at various festivals," he said.

Doordarshan had withheld the telecast of the film after Prasar Bharati raised objections to certain views pertaining to the Emergency.
