"Well if it does not get ready by two months we will ask the government to extend the time period... Because it's important enough for us to do a thorough job. We are not there simply to do window dressing."
Benegal was speaking at the 6th National Science Film Festival & Competition (NSFF) press meet here. The committee, set up to revamp the functioning of censor board which has been mired in controversies in recent past, is scheduled to submit its report in two months.
The panel also includes filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, adman Piyush Pandey and film critic Bhawana Somaaya. Benegal said the committee will look into what the audience feels about certifying films.
"We are taking into consideration the views of all the stakeholders, which means cinema audiences. The questions are being posed to people via Internet. There is a website of the NFDC, asking some questions. And also offering to the people exactly what has happened in this field earlier or over a period of time," the 81-year-old filmmaker said.
