Mumbai: The dispute over Udta Punjab has barely ended when another film of Anurag Kashyap production has been targeted by the Censor Board.

This time, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has refused to certify ‘Haraamkhor’, which has Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the lead role. The board has objected to its theme that deals with romance between a student and a teacher.

“The flick is based on a 'distasteful' theme and there are many inappropriate dialogues spoken by kids. Also, the gestures of kids in the film were found objectionable. Hence, the board refuses to certify it,” reads a letter issued by CBFC.

Highlights:

  • The filmmakers are now planning to appeal to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) against CBFC decision.
  • 'Haraamkhor' was premiered in the 15th annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) and Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA).
  • According to sources, the board has a problem with the love affair between a teacher and student being depicted in the film when teachers are revered in the country.
