Vikramaditya Motwane is all set for the release of his upcoming flick ‘Trapped’. Well, it’s a film produced under Phantom Films, and the production doesn’t have that much of a good rapport with Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC).

Recently, when we met Vikramaditya for an interview, we asked him about his film ‘Trapped’ being certified, to which he said, “Yes it is. It has got a U/A certificate. We did certification long time ago.”

When he was questioned about the not so good rapport with CBFC, the director said, “They don’t like us very much (laughs). When we go with a film they are like ‘Oh no, these guys are back. Give A, refuse certification’.”

Further talking about CBFC, he said, “There’s no harm in getting an A. Filmmakers are fine with an A, but the problem is when they are saying A with cuts, and that’s what we are fighting about.”

“You had ‘Befikre’ passed with U/A , so many violent films passed with a U/A. So, I am not understating their reasoning behind it. In ‘Masaan’, at one level they say this is very mature film, and then they say yeh ‘chu***’, ‘behench***’ kato (cut the abusive words), why because you feel that people can’t take two gaalis in a film.”

When he was asked if CBFC judges on the basis of production houses, Vikramaditya said, “Possible, it is quite possible. But, I think you don’t need to censor anything in the film. People have enough of sense to know what they don’t want to watch and what they want to watch. If you don’t want to watch it, don’t watch, but it doesn’t mean that I should censor it for audience. You are a certification board, not a censor board. You are Central Board Of Film Certification, so certify don’t censor.” (Also Read: Did you know?

Well, after ‘Trapped’, the director’s next film will be ‘Bhavesh Joshi’ which is 60 percent completed.
