For kids "violence is okay, but love is not" is a condescending double standard that plagues most Indian censors, says director Sudhir Mishra.
Speaking during an interactive session at the ongoing 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Mishra said the outlook of Indian censors needed to be re-looked at, especially when it comes to issuing censor certificates.
"Kids are allowed to watch violence but not intimate scenes because such scenes are 'adult' in nature. How does any of this make sense," Mishra asked.
The director, who has crafted several critically acclaimed films like "Hazaaron Kwhaishein Aisi", "Dharavi", "Chameli", etc., also said that several of his films had intimate scenes over which he had to wrangle with the censor board for clearance.
"My film ('Hazaaron Kwhaishein Aisi') was called an adult film by the censors. I believe, even school children should be made to see critically acclaimed films like these, because there is so much to learn about an age," he said.
