Lucknow High Court Movie Dirty Picture telecast Late Night not Prime Time

One of the television channel that is Sony was showing advertisement that they will show movie Dirty Picture on 22nd April 2012 during prime hours at 12 noon, and 8 pm.

After this public interest litigation was filed by Santosh Kumar Rai.

He told to Court that the movie 'The Dirty Picture' has been granted 'A' certificate by the Censor Board of India and can be telecast only during the watershed hours in the night in terms of the programme and advertising codes prescribed under the Cable Television Network Rules, 1984

After hearing the petitioner The Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad high court said following

Justice Uma Nath Singh and Justice Virendra Kumar Dixit ruled that if the information provided by the petitioner is correct and it amounts to violation of guidelines issued by the government of India through ministry of information and broadcasting as also Cable Television Network Rules, it would be appropriate for the respondents to verify the information and take necessary action to stop the violation thereof.

This means that Court ordered that adult movies can be only shown at night time.

The time has come that now government should give permission to start adult movie channels and let the customers and Indian citizens decide what they want to see in their homes.

The court has just passed the order because of Guidelines, these guide lines should be made applicable to the trailers and promos of the adult movie also.

The government needs to change and modify the guidelines and bring clarity in the guidelines.
