Letter to Regional Censor Officer


The Regional Censor Officer,

Central Board of Film Certification,

Samachar Bhavan,

A.C.Guards, Hyderabad.


In the interest of cine goers of telugu films we issue this notice to you.

We happened to see the film "KUBERULU" which was given U certificate by the censor board. Shockingly the film consists 3 vulgar and obscene songs which are likely to corrupt the young and innocent minds. We failed to understand how the U certificate was given to the said film. This clearly goes to show that the board is not discharging its duties properly in the interest of general public. The said film is harmful to the children if viewed and deserved to be given A certificate. However the producers can telecaste the film on television as you have given U certificate for the film.

We therefore call upon you to withdraw the U certificate for the above film and re censor and give suitable certificate. Further we demand to recommend the names of the censor members who viewed and gave the said certificate for removal from the board. We hope and understand that you might not have seen the film and given consent for U certificate and as such we are not making any complaint at this juncture. Intimate the action taken in this regard within 15 days from the date of receipt of this notice, failing which we shall be constrained to initiate appropriate legal proceedings against all the concerned making you people responsible for the costs and consequences thereof.
