With as many trouble hindering the release of Sarkar 3, the film has plunged into another confusion as it was advised by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for certain cuts in the film. With only two days to go for the scheduled release of the movie, the CBFC demands have made the makers of the film in a fix.
Sarkar 3 directed by Ram Gopal Varma, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Amit Sadh, Yami Gautam, Manoj Bajpayee, Jackie Shroff, Ronit Roy. The film has its original release planned on 12 May.
The Board has asked to remove the reference of monkey god Hanuman and some events from the Ramayana. There is also a dialogue in the film that refers to lord Hanuman, which has been asked to cut, state the reports. A source from the Central Board of Film Certification told DNA newspaper, “We've asked them to delete the mythological reference as it doesn't go well with the context of the crime in the film.” In fact, some source from the board also revealed that the film is Ram Gopal Varma’s best work in years.
As per reports, the members of the board have been given the power to impose a blanket ban on all mythological or religious references in any film that appear similar to the original context.
We’ve to be very careful about religious sentiments. We’re living in ultra-sensitive times where even a passing reference to a religious figure could trigger legal action against the filmmakers and the CBFC. At the same time, we’re very careful to not disturb the flow of the narrative in any film. We ask for no changes that affect the story.Palhaj Nihalani the CBFC Chief
With CBFC members praising his film, it seems like RGV is all set to be back in the game, we just hope the filmmaker does not land himself into another trouble.
