Just a few weeks back, we had reported that Aakrosh was stuck in censor problems as there were approximately 30 cuts that were requested within the film. Director Priyadarshan and producer Kumar Mangat, who were livid with the imposition, approached the Revising Committee.
Aakrosh which stars Ajay Devgn, Akshaye Khanna, Bipasha Basu and Paresh Rawal in lead roles is based on the fictitious town of Jhanjhargaon in North India, which starts with the disappearance of three college students who go to watch the Ramleela staged in their village. A few days later, they are reported to have been killed. Ajay Devgn and Akshaye Khanna play the two CBI officers from Delhi sent to the village to investigate the mysterious deaths. That's when they discover a thriving nexus between police and local politicians in caste-related murders.
The latest on this, is that the film has been granted an 'A' certificate with just a measly five cuts by the Revising Committee, a drastic improvement from the initially asked for 30. With this new certificate, Aakrosh is all set to release on October 15.
