There were widespread reports on Wednesday afternoon of Thackeray the bio-pic of Balasaheb Thackeray being censored hours before the trailer launch. As per these reports the Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC) asked for changes in thedialogues at the last minute thereby inconveniencing the trailer launch .
However Tushar Karmarkar , RO of the CBFC in Mumbai says the changes were done without any dispute whatsoever.
Says Karmarkar, “Some audio-modifications were suggested in Marathi trailer of film Thackeray. These have been mutually agreed upon by the filmmaker and the CBFC.”
A source adds that the film won’t face major hurdles when it comes up for censor certification.
“Balasaheb Thackeray was known to speak his mind on public forums. All his controversial remarks are available in the public domain. So what is the need for the CBFC to tamper with or modify statements that are already public knowledge?” asks the source close to the CBFC.
