Anurag Kashyap may have his issues with the censor board-what with his production Udta Punjab and directorial venture Raman Raghav 2:0 both awaiting censor clearance. But his colleague and associate Ribhu Dasgputa who helmed the TV series Yudh which Kashyap produced, has sailed through censor board unscathed with his first feature film Te3n.
A source from the censor board says, “We viewed the film and found it powerful and relevant. The content is hard hitting, yes. And because the theme is crime and investigation a UA certificate was warranted. But to cut even a single moment would have harmed the film.”
Much relieved and happy director Ribhu Dasgupta says, “As filmmakers our intention is always to make the best of films. And while we make a film we never think of how the censor board will react to it. We do what is best for the film. But now after seeing the film the censor board has given us a clean go without any cuts, which I think is really great.”
