FCAT clears Babumoshai Bandookbaaz
The CBFC had demanded 48 cuts in the film but now FCAT clears it with only 8 minor cuts
Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has been cleared by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) with eight "minor and voluntary cuts". Its team is happy, says writer Ghalib Asad Bhopali.
He says, "We are very happy because all the cuts are very minor. Now, the audience can see what we wanted to show through the film. However, we are still waiting for certification, hope we will get it soon this time."
The film's director Kushan Nandy tweeted earlier on Wednesday,
The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which was earlier headed by Nihalani, had demanded 48 cuts in the film, which has intimate scenes, to get 'A' certification. The director also gave a "big thank you" to the ones who supported him "throughout the entire battle."
Nawazuddin also tweeted saying,
Thanks FCAT for clearing #BabumoshaiBandookbaaz with minor voluntary cuts. The film will now release with its original flavour on 25th Aug— Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) August 16, 2017
