The Bengali film Shunyota has got finally the Central Board of Film Certification’s (CBFC) regional office nod with six cuts. The director of the film, Suvendu Ghosh had few days ago alleged that the regional office of Censor Board is making efforts to delay the release of his film by not certifying it. The movie is based on the effects of demonetisation on the common man.
Confirming this, director Suvendu Ghosh , that the CBFC recommended six cuts in his film adding, “I will abide by that.”
Most of the suggested cuts included comments on demonetisation effects by principal characters like “death procession”, “big fishes” and some comments between a mother-daughter, which the Censor Board suggested to be deleted or kept mute with a beep.
The director said he was requested to visit the Board’s Kolkata office yesterday and informed about the developments. “I have to accept what they say. I wish my work be finally seen by the general audience,” Suvendu said.
A CBFC spokesman said, “The Chairperson of CBFC has decided on the matter. The film has been cleared as per recommendations of the examining committee.”
The director said, “I understand after I put into effect the suggestions, we will be granted U/A certification.”
