Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has denied all the controversies that surfaced that CBFC has ordered the makers Christian Bale to blur scenes in Ford v Ferrari. The CBFC chairperson Prasoon Joshi opened up on Wednesday saying that the CBFC board had never asked the makers of the movie to blur any scenes.
Further, Prasoon expressed his disappointment with all of those who propagated the false news that CBFC has asked to blur shots in the James Mangold helmed-movie that stars Matt Damon. Prasoon further clarified in the statement saying that "it was done voluntarily by the makers and has nothing to do with CBFC."
CBFC chief further said in a statement that, "To mindlessly assume, comment and attempt to drag into controversy without any substantiation is disappointing and uncalled for. Especially so when CBFC as a responsible organization over the last years has worked sincerely to ensure that a fine and fair balance is maintained."

The CBFC chief and the board also have asked people to not drag to any manufactured controversies from now on. He further concluded the statement saying, "I hope with this clarification that the discerning people or audience would see through the motivated attempts to drag CBFC into manufactured controversies. In the future, I would suggest and request that this kind of shallow reporting and reactions are refrained from."
The CBFC chief's statement was out after days when a part of the media reported that the images of the alcohol bottles and the glasses containing alcohol have been reportedly blurred in the action film on the direction of the film board.
