After the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) demanded that 'Noor' makers edit a reference to veteran journalist Barkha Dutt in the film, its leading lady Sonakshi Sinha says the censor body needs to have a uniform approach towards movies.
In 'Noor', Sonakshi plays a journalist who idolises Barkha Dutt, but the CBFC has asked the makers to edit the surname Dutt.
When asked about it, Sonakshi told IANS: 'The censor board really needs to come to a consensus within themselves on what is right in one film... Is not right in another film.'
'There is no consistency in what they censor or what they uncensor, so I think they first need to come to a consensus.'
Directed by Sunhil Sippy, the crime thriller comedy is an adaptation of Pakistani novel 'Karachi, You're Killing Me!' by Saba Imtiaz.
The novel centres around a 20-year-old reporter Ayesha Khan, living in Karachi, and her misadventures and finding a nice lover.
