The CBFC has cleared Anees Bazmee’s ‘Mubarakan’ with a ‘U/A’ certificate and no cuts. Says a source from the CBFC, “We saw no reason to delete a single shot or cut a single word. Director Aneez Bazmee shows how to be funny without being vulgar.”
The Censor Board in fact plans to recommend a special censor grading for clean wholesome family comedies to the Information & Broadcasting ministry.
“Normally Bollywood comedies are filled with vulgar double meanings and shots of women in provocative poses with their cleavage on display. Anees Bazmee shows how comedy films can be family affairs. One can evoke laughter without referring to body parts and bodily functions,” says a censor source.
Praising the film’s clean content, a source from the Censor Board describes Anil Kapoor as the film’s USP. “Anil is the life and breath of this comedy. He is consistently funny without using double-meaning dialogues. While viewing the film we laughed so much and didn’t once think anything required to be cut.”
Mubarakan brings chacha-bhatija jodi (Arjun Kapoor-Anil Kapoor) together onscreen for the first time. Arjun is playing a double role in the much awaited film. He plays Charan and Karan, Anil Kapoor’s nephews.
With Athiya Shetty and Ileana D’Cruz as the leading ladies, ‘Mubarakan‘ is a comedy film revolving around a big fat Indian wedding. The film will also stars Neha Sharma, Karan Kundra, Ratna Pathak Shah and others.
The film “Mubarakan” directed by Anees Bazmee is slated to have its worldwide release on 28th July 2017.
