With the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) become more and more sensitive to what Bollywood’s filmmakers can get away with, the next film to come under scrutiny is the Sonam Kapoor starrer ‘Khoobsurat’.
According to reports, the censor board had a problem with one of the songs included in the film. Titled ‘Maa Ka Phone’, apparently they made the assumption that the song could be passed off as an offensive song and decided to have it reviewed further. Mid-Day��reported a source explaining, “There is a pause between ‘Teri Maa Ka’ and ‘Phone’ and that is the reason it was referred to the Revising Committee (RC).”
Haven taken around 10 days to clear, the song was finally able to air on TV screen last week. The source went onto add, “The track was submitted for clearance to the CBFC 15 days ago, but due to the recent chaos in the Censor Board it took a while for the makers to get the song cleared. It was eventually cleared by the RC which was a day before the song hit the TV screens last week.”
Also starring Fawad Afzal Khan, Kirron Kher and Ratna Pathak, ‘Khoobsurat’ is set to hit the silver screens on 19th September.
