No telecast of Army movies without NOC from Defence Ministry
New Delhi: For the films made on the Army, the Ministry of Defense has issued an order stating that it will be mandatory to take orders from the Ministry of Defense before the film is telecast. There have been some complaints about the depiction of Indian Army personnel and military uniforms in the film and web series.
No telecast without NOC:
After receiving these complaints, the Defense Ministry has formally asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), MEITY) and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to ask the production house before airing the film / documentary / web series on the Indian Army. They get NOC from Ministry of Defense. Without NOC, films and scenes from the Indian Army will not be broadcast.
Defence films in Bollywood:
The Central Board of Film Certification and the Ministry of Information Broadcasting have also been told by the Ministry of Defense that all this is being done to prevent incidents that tarnish the image of the defense forces and hurt the sentiments of defense personnel and veterans.
Web series showing fake content:
In the complaint received from the Ministry of Defense, it has been said that series such as the web series code M and G5’s XX Uncensored (Season-2) broadcast on ALT Balaji have shown some scenes which are far from reality.
Not only that, the scenes shown in the Army in the series show a bad image of the armed forces. Some concerned civilians and ex-servicemen organizations have also filed FIRs against ALT Balaji seeking legal action against the producer and the OTT platform.
