CBFC has been instructed to take a firm stand against shrill jingoistic films indulging in hate-mongering.
John Abraham is one relieved actor. His new espionage thriller RAW, which opens on Friday, was viewed by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) and cleared with a ‘UA’ certificate.
Only two verbal cuts were ordered. A source in the know says, “The CBFC members really liked the film. There was no objection to any of the political content. Although it is a cross-border espionage thriller, but the film does not indulge in any Paki-bashing.”
Apparently, the CBFC has been instructed to take a firm stand against shrill jingoistic films indulging in unnecessary hate-mongering. Says RAW director Robby Grewal, “We were asked to make just two audio cuts. We had to remove two cusswords which we happily did. There were no visual cuts at all.”
