It looks like Madhur Bhandarkar has got quite a tantalizing film lined up for release. His next feature Calendar Girl, which comes after the fiasco that was his last release Heroine and the aborted attempt to start another film Madamjee starring Priyanka Chopra, is suffused in sufficient slivers of sensationalism.
Sources at the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) reveal that the film’s first trailer was submitted for certification. And the results were….explosive!
Says a source, “The trailer contains a lot of provocative and sensuous content. There was even a shot of nude woman which we had to of course snip off before granting the trailer a ‘U/A’ certificate. We don’t know how or why Bhandarkar came to us with a trailer that contained a nude shot. He should know that such a shot can never be passed in a trailer.”
The ‘U/A’ certificate for the trailer automatically limits its reach. It cannot be shown on television and it can only be attached to films that are certified for all ages.
