The filmmaker was miffed when his Anushka Sharma-Imran Khan-Pankaj Kapur-starrer received an A certificate. But no more!
Last heard, Vishal Bhardwaj was fuming over the A certificate the censor board handed out to Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola because of the word ‘paincho’ uttered by Pankaj Kapur. And that’s because it sounded very similar to a Hindi abuse (did you guess it?). So Bhardwaj decided to appeal against the decision passed by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and guess what – Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola finally got an U/A certificate!
“I’ve always wanted my films to reach out to a wider audience. Finally with MKBKM not restricted by the A rating, I’ll be able to do so. I’d like to thank the CBFC for giving this rating as it’s a bright and happy film,” said an elated Vishal.
