Before the establishment of PBFC, Central Board Of Film Censors (CBFC) called the shots. CBFC was widely presided by politicians and bureaucrats who had no background from the media industry.
So when PBFC was formed, veteran actress Zeba was appointed as its first Chairman. This was a step towards allowing the fraternity to participate in decision making.
Now with Adeel Hashmi taking charge, the industry hopes that the censor issues faced by films will be resolved with a pro-active approach.
Particularly with films like Burj that are critically acclaimed abroad yet have been banned by Pakistan’s own censor boards.
