Bollywood’s one of the popular actresses Raveena Tandon has featured in a hard-hitting narrative ‘Maatr’. The film deals with the sensitive and most pressing issue of rape. Apparently, the film has reportedly been banned by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC).
According to Times Of India.com, the film has been denied certification due to some objectionable scenes which the CBFC deemed inappropriate. The report quotes the actress as talking to a leading daily that the Censor Board is bound by ‘archaic laws’ and it should consider changing with the times.She further went on to say that a film like ‘Maatr’ needs to be told without sugar coating the content.
Meanwhile, ANI quoted CBFC CEO Anurag Shrivastava denied such claims and said that the examination committee is still in process and the result will be conveyed in a day or two. “The screening of the movie `Maatr` for CBFC was done yesterday evening and at the moment there is no screening of `Maatr` again. The ban on the movie is false, as the examination committee is still in process and the result will be conveyed in a day or two,” he said.
‘Maatr’ has been directed by Ashtar Sayed and the thriller is written by Michael Pellico. It is slated to release it on April 21, 2017.
