After a heated discussion, the revising committee finally passed the film to release on March 13
Anushka Sharma and Neel Bhoopalam starrer NH10 is the latest film to come under the Censor Board scanner. The film, that centres the story of a road trip gone wrong, was initially to release on March 6. But the panel was not a bit convinced to pass Anushka's maiden production, which is loaded with 'violence' and 'abuses.' There was a split in the Examining Committee of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on the same. Following which, the producers then took the film to the Revising Committee, who watched the film on Wednesday and have now cleared it with an 'A" certificate. Yes!
Co-producer Anurag Kashyap confirmed the news and said, "NH10 has been passed with a few audio cuts and a video cut that does not damage the film at all. They saw it completely in context and even appreciated it. It was a very reassuring revising committee,"
The development comes after the February 26 meeting of the Minister of State for I & B, Rajyavardhan Rathore with a Bollywood contingent, which included Anurag Kashyap, Mukesh Bhatt and Siddharth Roy Kapur. They were directed by the minister to "ignore" CBFC Chairperson Pahlaj Nihalani's order of banning the use of certain cuss words and expressions. Anurag's business partner, Vikas Bahl, was equally jubilant. "The RC's decision was unanimous. They understood what we were talking about and saw the larger picture," he said. "Even the visual cut was minimal. The scene was retained, we were just told to edit it a bit. And many of the cuss words too have been retained." CBFC CEO Shravan Kimar too added to quote, "The idea is not to curb the creative freedom of the filmmaker."
So that clears, NH10 will FINALLY hit the screens on March 13. Watch the trailer of NH10 right here and await the much awaited film, next weekend!
