PRODUCER OF FILM ‘BABUMOSHAI BANDOOKBAAZ’ KIRAN SHROFF SAID TO CBFE THAT CHILDREN WATCH FILMS THAT ARE GIVEN ‘A’ CERTIFICATE :

In its latest demand for cuts in a film, the censor board has asked the makers of Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ to make 48 snips. The movie’s producer Kiran Shroff says the CBFC members argued that the cuts are needed as even children watch films that are given ‘A’ certification. Shroff was present along with the actors and director of ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ here on Wednesday to speak to the media. She said: “They (CBFC members) had a one hour of discussion. We were very restless. We did expect a barrage of objections which would be raised. We were fine with A certification, but asked about 48 cuts. We asked, ‘Why so many cuts when we are getting A (certificate) anyway?’.” “They said because kids also watch an A film. The reasoning made no sense. It’s a silly argument.” Shroff also claimed the members of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) humiliated her. “They said you can explain why such objectionable words and scenes are there in the film. A lady questioned me, ‘How could you make a film like this despite being a woman yourself?’ A gentleman said, ‘How can she be a woman as she is wearing a pant and shir?’. I was stunned.” The Times of  India : 2nd. Aug,17
