Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuh takes digs at the PM & Mahatma Gandhi – lands in fresh trouble

The filmmaker has been asked to make six cuts in his film for various objectionable portions

After declaring Chakravyuh song Tata, Birla a ‘personal attack’, the Central Board of Film Certification has now put pressure on filmmaker Prakash Jha to delete some portions where there is an apparent direct taunt at Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh. The line in question – Bahut dekhi teri sardari – is seen by the censor board as a ‘pointed reference’ to the PM, as he is a Sardar belonging to the Sikh community.

In the same song, an old phrase included in lyrics deriding the Mahatma Gandhi – Majboori ka naam Mahatma Gandhi – have also been asked to be removed by the board. There is also a reference to the  controversial Vedanta group of industries as Mahanta. All these parts are going to be erased from the film by the producers.

Chakravyuh releases on October 24, 2012. The film stars at Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol, Esha Gupta, Manoj Bajpayee, Anjali Patil, Om Puri and Kabir Bedi, among others.
