Used to his run-ins with the Censor Board, especially after making other hard hitting films like GANGAAJAL and APAHARAN, Prakash Jha claims that he isn't overtly worried about before presenting AARAKSHAN for a Censor certificate.

His tryst with Censor Board is well known. For RAANJEETI, there was a dialogue which went as 'Le Jayegi Vidhwa Support Samet Ke'. Apparently the Board felt that the dialogue was referring to Sonia Gandhi due to which the word 'Vidhwa' had to be replaced by 'Bitiya'.


This is not all as even for his production TURNING 30, there were certain objections raised by the Censor Board as apparently the film's video clips shown on television were not endorsed by it. It's a different matter though that Jha had clarified this through a press conference. Now for AARAKSHAN as well, he is sure about what he wants.

CHECK OUT: One has to work within commercial constraints

"We had a seed for the story and we did ample research before making an entire film out of it. We all feel responsible for the statement we are making. Yahi satya hai and we are not scared to tell it. If Censor Board has any questions, they are welcome to put them forth. I would be happy to answer them all," says Jha who is now looking at changing gears for the film's promotion once Amitabh Bachchan's BBUDDAH... HOGA TERRA BAAP is out of the way.

The fact though is that the statement made by him through this hard hitting multi starrer would be scrutinized very carefully before it reaches out to the whole world. Tell Jha this and he says in a firm tone, "My endeavour is to tell the truth. If instead of one person, it reaches out to the entire 120 crores population, I would still stick by that. "

Now it has to be seen whether Censor Board too manages to digest this 'satya'!
