Shorgul receives clearance, hits screens today
There are numerous obstacles coming up, but despite all that, we will release the film on July 1... (We are) hoping to release the film in 700-750 screens,” said the film’s creative director Shashie Vermaa.
The film is said to be based on the Muzaffarnagar riots, and objections have been raised alleging that it features characters inspired by BJP legislator Sangeet Som, Uttar Pradesh current Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and state cabinet minister Azam Khan.
The makers have denied that the film is based on the Muzaffarnagar riots and have received clearance from the censor board.
Shorgul stars Jimmy Sheirgill and Ashutosh Rana in key roles.
