Raveena Tandon has hit back at the Central Board of Film Certification’s (CBFC) Examining Committee for refusing to certify her next ‘Maatr’.
Mid-Day reports that the certification was refused due to gruesome scenes – one which occurs in the first ten minutes of the film involving the rape of the protagonist’s daughter.
Tandon was cited in the publication saying, “The Censor Board is bound by archaic laws which need to change according to the current times. Maatr is a story that needs to be told. We’ve had enough of sugarcoating of harsh realities. If this continues we will remain indifferent to brutality, and rape will remain a taboo.”
The film is set to be reviewed again this week and a verdict is expected thereafter.
‘Maatr’ is due out at cinemas this weekend.
