"We welcome any positive change according to film fraternity," Nihalani told reporters, when asked on proposed changes in structure and functioning of the Censor Board.

Jaitley had earlier said that he would like the Film Certification Board to be controversy-free, saying he was discussing the matter with some experts as to what should be the future role of the body.

The CBFC commonly referred as the Censor Board is a statutory censorship and classification body under the Information and Broadcasting Ministry and is mandated to regulate the public exhibition of films under the Cinematograph Act 1952.

The board has been mired in controversy since the beginning of the year when Pahlaj Nihalani took charge as its chairperson.
