Mumbai:  Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' has been cleared by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) with "eight minor, voluntary cuts".

The director of the film, Kushan Nandy made the announcement on Twitter.


"FCAT clears #BabumoshaiBandookbaaz with eight minor, voluntary cuts. Despite #PahlajNihalani's last letter to stop it. See you on August 25," he wrote.

The then Pahlaj Nihalani-led Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had initially ordered 48 cuts in the movie, after giving an 'A' certificate.

The news comes days after the appointment of adman- lyricist Prasoon Joshi as the new chairman of the CBFC.

Nandy also thanked Indian Film and Television Directors Association (IFTDA), including directors such as Vikramaditya Motwane, Satish Kaushik and Abhishek Chaubey, and the media for their support.


'Babumoshai...' had run into trouble with the CBFC, which has raised objections to the cuss words and some scenes in the film.

Nawazuddin defended the movie saying the abuses in the film were justified as they make the characters look authentic.

Also featuring actors Bidita Bag and Shradha Das, the movie will hit the screens on August 25.
