Aamir Khan-starrer Ghajini has won another court battle. The Bombay High Court on Friday set aside a petition challenging the film’s U/A certification.
Hearing a petition filed by Pratiba Naitthani (38), a professor at St Xavier’s College, against the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Centre for issuing an U/A certification to Ghajini, a division bench of Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice DY Chandrachud observed that as the film had been released three weeks back many people had already watched it.
“What is the point now? Let the censor board do its job. What will high court do in this [matter]?” asked Chief Justice.
The petition alleged that the CBFC had issued the U/A certification “without applying its mind and without thinking of the consequences such gruesome violence on the minds of children”.
