Fukrey Returns Gets The All-Clear From Censor

There seems to be a newly-discovered air of liberalism blowing through the stuffy corridors of  the  CBFC office. The board members have not only become more liberal they’ve also developed a sense  of humour.

 Or so it seems  going by the amount of unconditional  laughter  that the censorboard members generated while watching the second  Fukrey film  before certifying it with a ‘UA’  and no cuts.

Apparently the board ‘had a ball’ watching  Fukrey Returns. They passed the film without cuts in spite  of  the fact the film takes jibes at many scared cows .

 In one of the many hilarious encounters Richa Chadha playing the gangster woman Bholi Punjaban tells the  franchise’s favourite character Choocha(Varun Sharma) it’s okay for him to die if he has seen 3 Idiots.

Apparently some  members  of the censorboard panel wanted an NOC from the 3 Idiots producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra before allowing his film to be mentioned. However the suggestion was shot down as “excessively cautious.”

One hopes the mood of unfettered freedom remains at the CBFC.
