Actor Sunny Leone’s upcoming venture ‘Mastizaade’ has been further delayed by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal.
‘Mastizaade’ was due for release this May and was awaiting clearance from the Censor Board.
However the revising committee found the content unsuitable for public viewing and refused to clear the film for release. The board cited that the content was too high on sexual nature.
From what we hear, one of the female members of the board had decided to pass the film with an ‘A’ certificate along with a few cuts but her decision, it seems, was not taken into consideration. Moreover, it is being said that Pahlaj Nihalani had told I&B Ministry that the decision for the film was taken by Nandini Sardesai, a member of RC. However, Pritish Nandy is apparently not convinced with the same since according to him, Nandini Sardesai was not present during either of the screening.
As of now, the decision over Mastizaade, directed by Milap Zaveri, starring Sunny Leone, Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das in the lead, is still pending, awaiting a reply from the Tribunal.
Reportedly ‘Mastizaade’ is buzzed to be loaded with sexual innuendo and the content of the film hasn’t gone down well with the Censor Board authorities.
