Filmmakers seem to be afraid of the��Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), than audiences or critics lately. As the films become more and more ‘out-of-the-box’, the censor board become more strict. Another film to have it a nerve with them is the film makers of the forthcoming sex comedy ‘Hunterrr’.
According to��India Today, the CBFC told the makers to revisit the film and change some of the language that was used in the original first cut. A��source from the board stated, “The trailer had been passed by the previous CBFC team, and it contained a lot of objectionable language. There is nothing we could do about it. However, the language censored in the film was done according to the suitability of the theme. We were aware that Hunterrr was a sex comedy. We went along with the risque dialogues as much as we could.”
Also catching up with the media was the films production house Phantom Films. A source from the company went onto explained, “We were asked to make changes in the dialogues, which we did. It was not that difficult since the actors are relatively less busy. If the film would have starred A-listers, it would have been impossible to re-do the dubbing.”
“But our team of actors Gulshan Devaiah, Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar went through the entire dubbing process again. We’ve substituted lines and words for what was seen by the CBFC as unacceptable verbal content. We’re now censored with an A certificate, and the film is ready for release,” they added.
Directed by Harshvardhan G Kulkarni, ‘Hunterrr’ is set for release on 20th March.
