National Award winning filmmaker Anant Mahadevan believes the system of certifying a film in India needs an overhaul, and things won't change just by replacing the censor body's chief.

Earlier this month, writer and ad man Prasoon Joshi was appointed chief of the Central Board of Film Certification. He replaced the controversial Pahlaj Nihalani, under whose leadership the censor body suggested snips, beeps and disclaimers to movies.

Mahadevan, who has just launched his upcoming directorial venture "Aksar 2", was asked about his expectation on creative freedom under Joshi's leadership.

He said: "I think if there's a new Prime Minister in India, still that person will work as a Prime Minister by following the system. Similarly, when it comes to CBFC, if we do not change the approach of certifying films, no CBFC chief can bring any difference.

"Unless we are just rating the film for certification as opposed to censoring them, the system will not change. Before saying if an individual is right or wrong, we should change the system."

"Aksar 2" features Zareen Khan, Gautam Rode, Abhinav Shukla, Mohit Madaan, Sreesanth and music director Mithoon. It will release on October 6.
