After a lot of argument, Madhur Bhandarkar’s Jail has been cleared with a U/A certificate and seven slashed scenes

After a lot of mayhem, finally Madhur Bhandarkar’s Jail has been given a green signal by the Censor Board, but with a U/A certificate. It was not an easy task for Madhur as the film has seven cuts, including the much talked about Neil’s nude scene. Madhur had a long argument with the Board officials, who were not ready to pass it without the cuts. Madhur had to finally accept the U/A certificate.

A source said, “The censor board was extremely strict. Seven scenes, including a love-making scene between Neil and Mugdha Godse, a homosexual scene, a sex joke and Neil’s nude scene, have all been slashed. Abusive dialogues have also been deleted. While Madhur was unwilling to concede a bit, he was also not ready to release the film with an A certificate.”

Ultimately, Madhur has to bow down to the authorities. He said, “The board wasn’t satisfied with some scenes and had asked me to further blur Neil’s already blurred nude scene. I did put across my arguments, but ultimately accepted the U/A certificate as I want everyone to see the film. It is an eye opener and a hard-hitting film which reflects the judiciary system of our country.”

The Regional Officer of Censor Board said, “Yes, there were certain scenes and dialogue which we found inappropriate and asked the director to remove them. If it is an A certificate film, we are very liberal, but otherwise we have to be strict. We loved the film. It was impressive and well researched. It surely is a thought provoking film but we have to go by the rule book and that’s what we did.”
