We are living through volatile dangerous as well as touchy times when one never ever knows what would certainly end up upseting one or the various other section of the audience. No wonder the CBFC has spiritual professionals on board to deal with any religious references in films.
And also it is currently verified, to this writer, from the supervisor himself, that his on-release eagerly waited for thriller-drama India's Most Wanted has actually certainly undertaken censorial treatment in one series where the Holy Quran and also the Bhagvat Gita are mentioned in the very same breath.
According to trusted resources in the censor board, the fusion of religious sentiments triggered alarm bells to go off in the censor board participants' cumulative heads.
One censor board member told me, "We honestly had no problem with the film and also its message and dialogues. Raj Kumar Gupta has made a hard-hitting raw and also real movie on anti-terrorism. At one factor there is a reference to the two religious texts which we believed would make target markets awkward and even incite a section to demonstration. I indicate Mandir-Masjid bhai-bhai is fine in concept. However actually you can not mix both spiritual identifications."
When I contacted the extremely dedicated director Rajkumar Gupta he stated, "They assumed it will harm the spiritual views of people. So they asked us to remove it and also we likewise didn't intend to injure anyone religious view so we eliminated it. It's an easy as that. Why would certainly we want any problem?"
Gupta is no stranger to amicable censorial intervention. His questionable 2nd feature movie No One Killed Jessica about the real-life killing of Jessica Lal was provided an 'A' certificate without cuts.
