Just like his film ‘Delhi Belly’ (2011), Akshat Verma is at it again with a racy storyline and even racier language. Though, the film has suffered delays due to the Central Board of Film Certification news has it that they have now given the film the clear, after the Tribunal supported the film.
“Thankfully ‘Kaalakaandi’ has been rescued from being butchered by the censor board. The CBFC had asked for more than 70 cuts, and that was mostly the language. But that’s how people speak in the milieu that I have gone to . You can’t gag the characters because their style of talking doesn’t suit you,” SKJ Bollywood News reports Verma stating.
He went on to express how thanks to the Tribunal the CBFC understood why much of the films content was appropriate for the storyline. “They restored all the cuts ,and by doing so they restored my faith in the democratic process. They just asked for three nominal verbal cuts which we made happily.The Tribunal understood the desperate essence of the theme.”
Starring Saif Ali Khan as the lead, ‘Kaalakaandi’ is set to hit the big screens on 12th January.
