Naseeruddin Shah has always been vocal about his view and doesn't really shy in putting them out in open. He saw his wife Ratna Pathak Shah's Lipstick Under My Burkha twice. We all by know that the film had to battle it out with CBFC for a release on the big screen. 
 
Talking about it, Naseeruddin said, "I really don’t know what problem they had with the film. I think they have a problem with female sexuality being portrayed on screen. What the film’s success has done is that it has shown [the Censor Board] up, and what they thought about the film. I have seen the film twice, and it’s a wonderfully made film that talks about what’s going on in society. I don’t know why the Censor Board had a problem with that."
 
He went on to add "One has to ask a psychiatrist as to why they are afraid of [female sexuality] on screen. It’s very frightening to see that the Censor Board can do whatever it wants and practise its biases openly and ban films that it doesn’t like. But the success of such films prove that no one is bothered about what the Censor Board or the doubters think about [these] films."
 
Shah also criticised the Censor Board for being dictatorial. Shah said, “For starters, they are supposed to give a film a certificate; they are no authority to ban a film, or stay its release. But then they claim to be someone who can do that. Their narrow-minded approach affects the film industry. But nothing has been done about it.”

Open your mind please. Totally agree with Shah

If bollywood keeps making mediocre content, soon the platform is going to change to the digital content. No censorship, no expensive tickets, and no star worshipping as it used to be. Then we will see how the star kids hold up when the very platform is the game changer. Digital is the future. That is what going to level the game for outsiders!

If movie industry can make or create whatever it wants without even having the knowledge of what explicit content is & upto what extent to show it all. CBFC is very necessary now a days to protect our cultural values. It's doing it's work perfectly fine.
