CBFC shuns the reports of ban on Raveena Tandon’s Maatr
The reports of Raveena Tandon starrer Maatr being banned by the Censor Board of Film Certification have been doing rounds on the internet for a while.
But the CBFC rubbishes the report saying that the examination committee is still in process and the result will be published in a couple of days.
"The screening of the movie 'Maatr' for CBFC was done yesterday evening and at the moment there is no screening of 'Maatr' again. Ban on the movie is false, as the examination committee is still in process and the result will be conveyed in a day or two," he said.
For the unversed, reports were doing the rounds that 'Maatr' has been banned by the CBFC and the reason behind this alleged ban was the film's violent rape scenes.
Earlier this week, the entire body of board members walked out of the film’s screening as they found that the content was very different from the screenplay that was submitted. The reports have also suggested that the CBFC denied the certificate to the film, and now the filmmakers have to appeal to the revising committee.
Ashtar Sayed directed ' Maatr' is an upcoming Indian revenge thriller, written by Michael Pellico and slated to release it on April 21, 2017.
