In the letter to the CBFC, the ministry said that “it has been brought to its notice that some production houses making films on Army theme are using contents which are distorting the image of the Armed Forces.”

Any content on OTT platform is unregulated by any of the regulatory body.

The communication to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has been done to curtail the incidents which distort the image of defence forces and hurt the sentiments of defence personnel and veterans, sources said to PTI.
