Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Velvet’ gets ‘A’ certificate


Central Board of Film Certification refuses to pass Anurag Kashyap‘s ‘Bombay Velvet‘ with `UA’ certificate. The reason cited by the board is that there are too many cuss words and violence in the film. Looks like Anurag Kashyap is going through troubled times, he recently was embroiled in a Twitter war with KRK. Later he filed an FIR for a video clip leak of his film. Now his upcoming ambitious project ‘Bombay Velvet’ being given an ‘A’ tag by the Censor Board.

‘Bombay Velvet’ has almost Rs 100 crore riding on it. Therefore an `A’ certification can limit the reach of this Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor starrer. Anurag Kashyap has now decided to approach the revising committee to solve his issue.

Sources revealed that, “Anurag Kashyap is an angry man these days. Right now, his anger is directed at the Central Board of Film Certification. The Board asked for several cuts, including the deletion of certain cuss words like `son of a bitch’. They also wanted some violent sequences toned down. And many members of the Examining Committee (EC) agreed that given its theme, the crime saga is more suited for adult viewing.”

Anurag Kashyap has confirmed the news, he said, “There is absolutely nothing in the film that warrants an `A’ certificate. We are going to Revising Committee. No hungama happened, we just didn’t agree with the cuts the Board asked for. I have more faith in the CBFC’s Revising Committee. Let’s see how it goes.”

Hope the issue of the Certification is resolved soon.
