The first film that made on the effects of demonetisation on the common man was sent to the CBFC Chairman for final decision. Directed by Suvendu Gosh, Shunyota is the Bengali film and it is slated to release on March 31st.
The Censor Board regional office has sent the film to the chairman and in a letter released by them, they stated, “The examining committee has watched the film on March 27. As there are opinion difference between the members regarding the certification of the film. We are sending the case to the chairman as per the certification rules.” They added, “We will inform you as soon as the office gets intimation from the chairperson’s office.”
In a press conference, the director Ghosh said that the members are not sure about the certification to be given to the film. “My three part film talks about the problems being faced by common people, who belong to different categories in the society. It doesn’t have any political shade.”
When the reporters questioned him, about the recent controversies in CBFC certification for films like Lipstick Under My Burkha and Udta Punjab, he stated that, “I strongly feel that the CBFC members are well experienced, but they should have some knowledge over the films while giving a report.”
He said that he was wondered how the board members have gave their thumbs up to the first two parts, which were shot in the form of short and documentary.
