During April, Sony TV aired its commercial for the World Premier of The Dirty Picture on tv. But soon we found out that it is not being aired as some political people have objected to showing it on tv. This created a big debacle between the Ministry and showbiz people who had a lot to say. Ministry's justification for doing so has been that there's a vast difference between going to watch a film at the theatre and watching it at home where young children with impressionable minds are present.
Now the film industry as well as the government are looking into this matter urgently and planning to come up with a new category of films that can be aired on tv channels.
