Debutant director Aasmaan Bhardwaj’s Kuttey has come and gone without a whimper at the boxoffice. But it has left behind a lingering bitterness in the ranks of the Central Board Of Film Certification.
The question that the CBFC has apparently been asked to answer by the Information & Broadcasting ministry is,how did all the abusive language in Kuttey get past the censorboard?
A source very close to the development informs, “Kuttey was carpeted with abusive language. The jury members asked the producers to replace the abusive language with something more acceptable. But the producers replaced the cusswords with more cusswords.”
Apparently a full-fledged inquiry was ordered to examine how the aberration was allowed to happen.
“Earlier this week, the CBFC’s CEO Ravinder Bhakar had stopped all censorial clearance while the Kuttey crisis was being resolved. The investigation is still on,” says a source in the know.
