HC asks CBFC to reconsider U/A certificate to film
The Delhi High Court today directed the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to reconsider the U/A certification issued to an upcoming film 'Santa Banta Pvt Ltd', which has evoked a controversy with a Sikh group claiming it made fun of the community.

A bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath asked CBFC to treat as a representation the petition filed by Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC), which has contended that the movie, scheduled for release on April 22, makes fun of the Sikh community and it could lead to "disturbance".
