Anurag Thakur recently took charge of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry at a crucial time when Indian Cinema was finding its way back from the setbacks received throughout the pandemic. Recent events include the uproar over specific streaming contents on the digital platform and criticism for the proposed changes in the censorship, certification and piracy, along with the shutdown of theaters due to social distancing norms. All these factors will become a trouble-making scenario for the newly joined Information and Broadcasting Minister. Various shows on different OTT platforms were pleaded to be stopped streaming, as per the litigations filed in multiple courts. Thus, keeping in mind these upcoming issues of censorship and changes made in the Cinematograph Act 1952. There will be a lot of challenges for the Minister.
