Mahesh Bhatt slammed the CBFC for delaying the release of the film.
Just a few days ago, Ashvin Kumar’s No Fathers in Kashmir, starring Soni Razdan, finally got a U/A certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The film had been stuck for eight months, for its sensitive subject. It will see the light of day on April 5. The trouble began last year when the film was passed with an A certificate. As a result, the makers challenged their decision and approached FCAT.
When Mahesh Bhatt was asked about this at the trailer launch of the film, he said, “It’s a tragedy that for a film like No Fathers In Kashmir, a filmmaker who puts his film together, has to run from pillar to post and beg people to get it through. In this age and time, is there anything called censorship? I have the audacity to look at the truth, the greatest epic which mankind has been blessed with, the Mahabharata came from the battle of Kurukshetra, in that moment of darkness, he who locks the eyes with the darkness discovers a life which Aswin has discovered.”
No Fathers in Kashmir tells the story of two teenagers in love, and how they uncover the secret behind the lost fathers in Kashmir. The tagline of the film says, “Everyone thinks that they know Kashmir.”
Earlier, Alia had tweeted in favour of the film as well. She wrote, “Was soo looking forward to mom’s @nofathers_movie #nofathersinkashmir!! @Soni_Razdan @ashvinkumar & team worked super hard for this honest teens love story in Kashmir. Really hope the CBFC would #lifttheban. It’s a film about empathy & compassion..let’s give love a chance.”
