Ishqiya’s 2nd promo under censor scanner too!
Posted December 23, 2009on:
It seems that the Censor Board and Vishal Bhardwaj are always at loggerheads. Now for the second time the promos of Ishqiya have been stuck with the censors over some dialogues and they have given them an ‘A’ certificate, which means that the promos cannot be aired on television.
Our source said, “The promos had a line that ‘Naadi tale H**** aur Peepal tale P****’ but censors gave an ‘A’ certificate to the 90-second promo. Now Shemaroo (the producers) and the cast and crew of the film have got together to make some changes to the promo so that it gets a ‘U/A’ certificate. Now the words have been changed to Naadi tale Khayenge aur peepal tale piyenge.”
When contacted Mansi Maroo, producer of the film said, “Basically the promos of the film, because of the language, are not being given a ‘U/A’ certificate, which is required to be screened on television. There are some modifications being made by the director Abhishek Chaube and Nasserbhai who is very helpful. They have made some changes while dubbing for the promo and hopefully it will be okayed by the censors.”
When contacted Vinayak Azad, Regional Officer Censor Board, said, “Yes, I have given an ‘A’ certificate to the promo and have also suggested some cuts for the promo. I believe they have gone to the revising committee and they will watch and decide its fate in a day or two.”
What a pity that creativity sometimes gets so embroiled in our squeamishness.
