Vishal happy with U/A certificate

Vishal happy with U/A certificate
Vishal Bhardwaj’s forthcoming rustic drama Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola has been cleared wuth a U/A certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The filmmaker is glad the movie will reach a wider audience.

‘I’ve always wanted my films to reach out to a wider audience. Finally with Matru..., not restricted by the A rating, I’ll be able to do so. I’d like to thank the CBFC for giving this rating as it’s a bright and happy film,’ Bhardwaj said in a statement.

The film had initially run into censor trouble with Pankaj Kapur’s character saying Pancho, which, the CBFC felt, sounded like a Hindi expletive. However, much to the director’s delight, the U/A rating makes the movie fit for family audiences, including those under 18.

With Matru..., Bhardwaj has set out to experiment with a brighter and funnier zone by diverting from his usual serious cinema. Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, presented by Fox Star Studios, releases 11 January.
