Kamal haasan's movie vishwaroopam

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Sunday condemned the allegations made by Tamil Nadu Advocate General Navaneetha Krishnan in connection with the certification of Kamal Hasan's film "Vishwaroopam".

"The Central Board of Film Certification would like to put it on record for all concerned that every action taken/procedure followed by CBFC for certifying 'Vishwaroopam' or any other film has been done in accordance with the Act and Rules framed by Parliament," the board said in a statement.

It said the board has been functioning since 1951 and that there are judicial precedents upholding the legality of the certification process.

"In view of the above, the statement of Advocate General Navaneetha Krishnan calling the certification process 'a scam' is baseless and irresponsible," the statement said.

Krishnan had last month alleged that the film was not certified by the competent authority and that it was not in accordance with law. At one stage, he also said that "film certification is a very big scam" and that it required an investigation.

The board also condemned the statement of advocate Sankarasubu who called the board members "purchasable commodities" and deemed it to be "utterly reprehensible and grossly defamatory".

The CBFC called upon Krishnan and Sankarasubu to issue an apology for the statements made by them.
