Sunny Deol starrer ‘Mohalla Assi’ promo gets a red signal from CBFC
Sunny Deol and Sakshi Tanwar’s upcoming film ‘Mohalla Assi’ is yet again stuck as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has refused to issue the certification for the one particular promo of the film, without any cuts.
After undergoing a long battle of 13 months Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s directorial ‘Mohalla Assi’ was finally issued ‘A’ certification. But now, the film is in trouble again because of its first promo. The CBFC’s examining committee has now given a red signal to the promo of the film, which was submitted last week.
The co-producer of the film, Ashok Ahuja told Mumbai Mirror, “A part of our promo had gone viral a few years ago, based on which many PILs were filed against the makers, after which the censor board said that parts of the film were hurting religious sentiments. We approached High Court and got our film cleared with an ‘A’ certificate and instructions to edit out one scene”.

He further told the tabloid, “Promos and trailers have to be cleared by the board before being released in the public domain. While our promo for a ‘U’ certificate has been cleared, the ‘A’ promo, has been denied. We have been told to remove two more scenes (with bad language) from the promo, but they are vital to our promotion”.
Ahuja revealed that they have been advised to approach the revising committee. Alongside, Sunny Deol and Sakshi Tanwar the film also stars Ravi Kishan, Saurabh Shukla, Mukesh Tiwari, and Rajendra Gupta in pivotal roles. ‘Mohalla Assi’ is set to release on 16th November 2018.
