Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has been in the controversy since the trailer of the film is revealed. Now in a news, the film gets an A rating from Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and 48 cuts due to the intense love making scene in the film.
The makers of the film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz have submitted the film to the censor board a few days back. After watching the movie the committee member decided to give it an A rating along with some insults to the producer. They even asked Kiran, how could a women make a film like this.
While talking to Bombay Times Kiran Shroff revealed, “They (CBFC) had an internal discussion for an hour after the screening. First, they told us that they were giving us an A certificate. Then they told us that there are 48 cuts. We argued that if the film is for adults, then why have so many cuts. They didn’t bother much, and continued to explain each cut and their logic behind it. In the middle of that, a lady officer turned to me and said, ‘Aap aurat hokar aisi filmein kaise bana sakti hain’. And before I could speak up, a man in the committee said, ‘But she is not a woman. Look at what she is wearing.’ I was dumbfounded. This is such a regressive thought. I was on the verge of saying that a lady officer in the committee is also wearing the same attire, so does that mean she too is not a woman? But I didn’t say a word because sadly, this is the kind of humiliation producers have to put up with. If they are judging me by my clothes, I can imagine the parameters they must have used to pass my film.”
