Aarakshan in a new controversy

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

It seems like the path of the movie "Aarakshan" is facing more obstacles as the film is approaching its release day. Earlier this week the news of the spat between the financer and producer was in limelight as the Producer Sajid Nadiadwala's cheque worth 3.5 crores bounced. Now the latest hurdle in their way is "Mayawati" and "SC/ST community".

The Chairman of the SC/ST commission PL Punia got a pre-screening of Prakash Jha’s "Aarakshan" and sought to play super censor, saying there were objectionable dialogues. But the Censor Board chief Leela Samson was categorical and the movie will be released without any further cuts. The film releases this Friday.

Even as politicians battle to decide the content of the film, the Central board of film certification emboldened by the Bombay High Court's green signal on Tuesday made it clear that they call the shots.
"We have asked Central Board of film certification that keeping in view our observations, you must order for a comprehensive revision of the film," said Punia.

"We have approved, we can’t hold back the release of the film," said Leela Samson.

The strongest words for the political super censors came from the lead actor in the film Amitabh Bachchan and the director.

"I do believe this is happening because some people want to exploit the situation without even know or understanding what the film is about," said Amitabh Bachchan.

Prakash Jha said, "There are people saying I have made a film for reservation and some are saying it is anti-reservation. So the allegations will continue."

From its mahurat shot, 'Aarakshan' ramains cast in controversy from alleged anti-dalit dialogues and attacking commercialisation the film got a political twist just before the release. The build up has been good but for the final verdict however it is the box office that will decide this Friday.
