Censor Board suggests trimming down one action scene in Vidyut Jammwal film for UA certification
Subhash K Jha (DNA; March 3, 2017)
The Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC aka the Censor Board) would like you to believe that action flick Commando 2 has some of the best stunts Bollywood has seen. So much so, they want to certify it as suitable for viewing by children. Accompanied by an adult, of course.
“The Board felt that kids should enjoy the action in Commando 2. Only one suggestion was made — cut one lengthy action scene — to get a U/A certification,” says our khabroo.
Producer Vipul Shah feels it’s only fair and sounds eager to comply. He says, “The action in my film is neither gruesome nor bloody. I am glad the Board saw this.”
Shah’s a rare breed. He insists he has never had an issue with the Censor Board or its chairperson. He says, “I realise they are just doing their job. Pahlaj Nihalani is not the first chairperson to be doing his job. With him at the helm, I’ve had no problems whatsoever. It may be fashionable to attack him. But I’ve no contribution to make to this trend.”
