International filmmaker Deepa Mehta’s film Midnight’s Children has been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), and without any cuts. The filmmaker is “thrilled”.

The movie is an adaptation of controversial author Salman Rushdie’s 1980 Booker Prize-winning book of the same name.

“India here we come – intact! Great news – ‘Midnight’s Children’ went through Indian censor board today without one pic cut. Salman Rushdie and I THRILLED,” Mehta tweeted. Rushdie joined in the excitement by tweeting “Fantastic!”.

The film features an ensemble cast of Satya Bhabha, Shriya Saran, Siddharth, Anupam Kher, Shabana Azmi, Seema Biswas, Shahana Goswami, Rahul Bose, Soha Ali Khan, Ronit Roy, and Darsheel Safary.

Shot mostly in Sri Lanka, the story is about a boy, Saleem Sinai, who is born at the exact time and date when India attained independence at midnight on August 15, 1947. It also revolves around partition and the national emergency imposed by then prime minister Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977.
