Anurag Kashyap, who is known for speaking his mind out, is one angry and upset man these days. The reason? His ‘continued tryst’ with the Censor Board. This time round, the film in question is his upcoming film Bombay Velvet, which is all set for a May 15 release.
However, what has angered Anurag is the fact that the members of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), who saw the film last week, did not accept his request for the film to be granted a ‘U/A’ certificate. They, have not just given the film an ‘A’ certificate, but have also (reportedly) asked for many cuts in the film, including the deletion of swear words like ‘son of a bitch’. Besides all this, they also wanted a few violent sequences to be toned down.
Unhappy with the ‘A’ certification, Anurag has now decided to challenge the Board’s decision by taking the film to the Revising Committee. Speaking about the same, he said that there was nothing in the film that certified it to be an ‘A’ film. He added that he had more faith the CBFC’s Revising Committee.
