In a move which led to much furore in Bollywood, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) decided to stop recertifying A-rated films, thereby making them ineligible for telecast on TV. What made matters worse was that the satellite rights of many films, like Gangs of Wasseypur (parts 1 and 2), Jannat 2,

Heroine, had already been sold to the broadcasters and banning their telecast would mean an adverse affect on the economics of the film industry as nearly 40 per cent of a film’s total profit comes from its satellite rights alone. This has been going on for some time and to ease the deadlock, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry asked the Censor Board to continue with recertifying until suitable amendments are made to the Cable Television Act. The CBFC took the initiative and recently called for a high-level meeting with senior members of the film industry to find a long-term solution to this ongoing debate
