The bold theatrical trailer of HATE STORY clearly indicated that the film will be certified as an adult film with an 'A' certificate. However, the director of the film, Vivek Agnihotri, also claims that his film is not for people below certain age and meant only for the adults.
Says the director, "Our motto is not to reach out to the masses but to reach out to the right person. And obviously this is an adult film. It is not meant for kids. And also not for them who think like kids."
According to Agnihotri, the film, which stars Paoli Dam, Gulshan Devaiyah and Nikhil Dwivedi, is India's first erotic movie. The film is about revenge and hate splattered with raunchy elements.
On asking actor Nikhil Dwivedi his views on the same, he said, "Why are we discussing about 'A' Certificate? If the film is made only for the adults, then it is so obvious as what the censor board will certify it… It's an adult film and I don't think it is something new to Hindi Cinema."
Says actress Paoli Dam, the female protagonist of the film, "It's indeed a bold film. And I want everybody to watch it."
Produced by Vikram Bhatt, HATE STORY releases on April 20, 2012.
