Realistic filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar's keenly awaited film FASHION will have a limited audience!
The Censor Board of Film Certification has passed FASHION under 'A' (Adult) certificate after they watched the film. On seeing the movie the censor board on many occasions felt that there were many such scenes which are not fit for family viewing.
As per few reports Bhandarkar was not happy with Censor Board's decision. Madhur who is quite enthusiastic about his dear project FASHION, was expecting an U/A certificate. He even argued for the same with the board members but they stood adamant. They were ready only under one condition, if Madhur deletes few scenes.
When Bhandarkar refused to do so, the members had no option other than certifying it as 'A'.
When we contacted Madhur to confirm the same he said, "Yeah that's true that Censor Board asked me to delete atleast 6 scenes. But I couldn't agree on the same as the theme of FASHION happens to be out and out glamorous. And deleting scenes from the movie would not have done justice to the film or blend in. I tried my best to convince them that deleting the scenes means removing the integral part from the film and compromising on realistic aspect of the movie. I certainly never expected that the board would give it a 'U' certificate, but I was sure enough to get an U/A certificate."
He further adds, "Since it would not have been a good option to hold the movie for the simple reason of certification, I didn't go for a further revising, though I had an option to appeal to the committee of the board against the Examining Committee's decision."
Now the film will hit the screens on the assigned date i.e. 29th October.
