Bala cries foul over double standards
November 06, 2009

Director Bala has expressed his displeasure over the double standards of the regulatory authorities on the publicly displayed content in a TV channel. He was referring to the censor board’s cuts in his film Naan Kadavul. Quite a few dialogues in the film had to be muted according to the board’s recommendations as they allegedly described very violent actions. Most of these dialogues were the ones spoken by Rudran, the character played by Arya, who is an Aghori. Aghoris are found in Kasi and are known for their ritual of eating corpses off the funeral pyre. This was the reason behind quite a few of Rudran’s dialogues being muted.

But now, almost eight months after the movie’s release, director Bala has expressed his annoyance. This is because of a program that has been aired on a TV channel recently which explicitly shows the images of Aghoris picking out corpses from the pyre in Kasi. Bala is reportedly angry over such visual content being aired on TV channels, which is watched by a large number of people, while dialogues depicting the same were not allowed in his movie. He has felt that this is clearly a case of double standard and that his freedom of expression had been unfairly curbed.
