Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is under pressure after some rumours spreading about the CBFC imposed a ban on the movie. Tushar Karmarkar, Regional Officer CBFC Mumbai has made it clear that any news of CBFC banning this film is completely false.
Soon after the rumour that censor board imposed a ban on the film, Actor Alia Bhatt on Thursday urged the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to lift the "ban" on her mother Soni Razdan's film ‘No Fathers in Kashmir’.
Was soo looking forward to mom's @nofathers_movie#nofathersinkashmir!! @Soni_Razdan @ashvinkumar & team worked super hard for this honest teens love story in Kashmir. Really hope the CBFC would #lifttheban. It's a film about empathy & compassionlet's give love a chance," Alia tweeted.
But CBFC rejected the rumour saying, the censor board did not imposed any ban of the movie yet.
Before Alia, actor Swara Bhasker also came out earlier in support of ‘No Fathers in Kashmir’ director Ashvin Kumar.
But it is said that some fresh cuts were again demanded in the film by censor board and director Ashvin Kumar has been running between the CBFC and the FCAT to get an 'U/A' certificate for his film as he thinks that his film deserves a wider audience.
Tushar Karmarkar, the regional officer CBFC Mumbai said that it is "unfortunate" that "unwarranted pressure" is being put by spreading "misinformation of a ban".
And all responsible people should take account of that. We want to again clarify that filmmakers of 'No fathers in Kashmir' have already been offered an adult certificate and the reasons thereof have clearly been communicated to them."
The story of ‘No fathers in Kashmir’ revolves around the hidden secrets of the lost fathers of Kashmir. A teenage British Kashmiri girl, Noor, retraces her roots in search of her father with Majid, a local Kashmiri boy. Majid finds himself guiding Noor to a forbidden area in the Indo-Pak border fraught with danger to find their disappeared fathers.
The stars in the film include Zara Webb, Shivam Raina, Ashvin Kumar, Soni Razdan, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Natasha Mago, Anshuman Jha and Shahnawaz Bhatt.
