‘Shanghai’ to release with U/A certificateJune 7th, 2012 - 2:10 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, June 7 (IANS) Dibakar Banerjee’s eagerly-awaited political thriller “Shanghai”, releasing Friday, has been awarded a U/A certificate by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), but with a cut.
CBFC CEO Pankaja Thakur refused to dwell on the cut, only saying: “We cleared the film with one cut with a UA certification. Beyond that we saw nothing objectionable in the content.”
As for the contentious song “Bharat mata ki jai”, the public suit filed against it in the Delhi High Court by the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena rejected Wednesday. The court dismissed a plea seeking stay of of the “Shanghai” release, saying that there was nothing insulting about “Bharat Mata ki jai”.
Starring Abhay Deol, Kalki Koechlin and Emraan Hashmi, the film is Banerjee’s fourth directorial venture after hits “Khosla Ka Ghosla”, “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!” and “Love Sex Aur Dhokha”.
