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

By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 23, 2009)

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.”

Shiney Ahuja’s wife Anupam is ecstatic on the actor being granted bail after serving prison term for three months for allegedly raping his maid

Shiney Ahuja

Did you anticipate that Shiney would get bail yesterday?

Honestly, I always went with a positive and open mind. Every time I used to feel ki ho jayega.What was special about yesterday that made it happen?

I would attribute it to our daughter, Arshiya. We hadn’t seen her since a long time as she was in Delhi. It was only six days ago, on September 27 that she came to Mumbai. It was her second birthday on September 28. She brought luck and her father was freed.

How did you react when you heard that Shiney has been granted bail?

I was overwhelmed, I started crying. I can’t tell you how happy and relieved I am feeling right now.

How are you planning to meet Shiney — with a hug or a kiss?

(Laughs) We will definitely hug. I imagine it will be a family picture with my daughter, parents and parents-in-law also being there.

Has the ordeal brought you and Shiney closer?

Yes, but that would have happened to any couple. There were funny stories about us and Shiney bore the brunt of it.

Are you not planning to return to the US (where she works). Will you continue staying in India with Shiney?

US can wait. That’s not a priority. I will be with Shiney — be it in Delhi or Mumbai.

Did you pray fervently for your husband’s freedom?

Of course, I used to go to Siddhivinayak every Tuesday and did many other things. My prayers have been answered. I want to thank the people from the film industry and everybody who stood by me. Ashoke Pandit, in particular, was like a rock by my side. I would also like to thank my lawyers — Shrikant Shivde, Neha Bhide, Manoj Mohite and Shirish Gupte.

How is Shiney’s health now?

He had a severe back problem on September 25. That was the last time I met him. He will be out of jail on Saturday. I am just dying to meet him.

Do you feel dejected that Shiney has been directed to stay out of Mumbai?

Not at all. I respect the law and have faith in the judiciary system. We will be fine in Delhi where our parents reside.

Will Shiney return to films?

Of course. Why would he go anywhere else? He will abide by the law and work wherever the law permits him to go.

Shah Rukh Khan to don the lawyer’s garb for his forthcoming film, Jolly LLB; Akshay Kumar’s best friend Rakesh Upadhyay will co-produce it
By Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; August 27, 2009)
For the first time, Shah Rukh Khan will play a lawyer in writer/director Subhash Kapoor’s film, Jolly LLB. This film will be produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Rakesh Upadhyay, who is a close aide of SRK’s closest competitor, Akshay Kumar. The film, which is based on a lawyer’s life, will be an expose on the judiciary system. Subhash had earlier directed a film on cricket Say Salaam India with Sanjay Suri, Vinay Pathak and Sandhya Mrudul.

Talking about SRK’s association with Rakesh, our source said, “Rakesh and SRK have been discussing various subjects for the past few months. SRK particularly liked this theme. If all goes well, the film will be on the floors by next year.”

Excited by the prospect of working with SRK, Subhash Kapoor said, “The film will take on the pros and cons of the judicial system. When we first had an appointment with SRK, he had given us about 45 minutes for the narration. However, we ended up discussing the film for over two hours. He took to the film in the first 20 minutes itself. He loved the film immensely. The film’s producer Rakesh Upadhyay is finalising the other details.”

When asked if SRK will co-produce the film, Rakesh Upadhyay said, “We have been talking about working together for a long time and this is the subject that we have zeroed in on. It is too early to say anything; we will make a formal announcement when everything is in place.”
