Cuts asked in ‘Jai Gangaajal’ unfair!

Saturday, January 09, 2016

Says filmmaker Prakash Jha, adding that Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani has suggested 11 cuts and told me to beep the word 'saala'. If I begin to do that then I have to beep it in 50 places...

FILMMAKER Prakash Jha says the cuts demanded by the censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani in his upcoming Priyanka Chopra-starrer 'Jai Gangaajal', including the removal of word 'saala', are not justified.

Jha said the cuts suggested will ruin the texture of the movie and he has moved to the tribunal against the decision of the censor board's revising committee.

"What can I say? He wanted to give 'A' certificate. When I asked why, he said, 'There are many abusive words in your movie. There is word 'saala'. He wanted us to remove the word and certain scenes but I don't think it is an abuse. It is used regularly by people. It is important to the texture of the movie," Jha told PTI.

"There is nothing explicit in the movie. My films deal with social issues and making those changes will be an injustice to my film."

The director said he had first gone to the examining committee but the members there had a difference of opinion then he moved to the revising committee, which was presided by Nihalani himself.

Jha said Nihalani could have discussed and a solution could have been found but instead he handed over many cuts to him.

"He has suggested 11 cuts and told me to beep the word 'saala'. If I begin to do that then I have to beep it in 50 places."5

Nihalani, however, told PTI that Jha was not telling the whole truth.

"I can't talk about each and every movie that comes for certification. Prakash Jha had come to us and we had agreed to give him 'A' certificate without any cuts but he wanted an U/A certificate. We did not agree to it. He is not telling the entire truth," he said.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Do not let go of the advantage you are enjoying, also do not get carried away with praise. You may be called upon to help out with a problem at work which is being handled by someone else but is your area of expertise. In a misunderstanding give the other person the benefit of the doubt and begin again. Do not let hurt pride spoil things for you. People make mistakes but not intentionally.
