Films with item songs are going to get an A certificate, as per the new guidelines formed by Censor Board of Film Certification. All these item songs need to be deleted while playing on TV channels as adult content is not allowed on small screen. This radical decision is taken by CBFC at Mumbai after feeling the heat of Delhi gang-rape incident. Since cinematography act was drawn in 1952, it needs serious amendments in order to define what an item song is. Item songs didn’t exist in 1952.
