He wanted it, he got it. 10 days back Saif Ali Khan had expressed a desire for Go Goa Gone getting an 'A' certificate for itself. His wish has indeed come true as Censors have gladly handed over an 'A' certificate to the film so that it reaches out only to its target audience, the mature kind, which watches zombies along with naughty elements for all the fun that they come along with.
"I am very happy that we have been fairly censored," says Saif who has produced the film along with Dinesh Vijan and Sunil Lulla, "We are now managing to show the movie as-is for what it's worth. We didn't have to mellow down the content and in the process perhaps alienate our target audience."
This is a sentiment that is shared by Raj of the director duo Raj-D.K. "We are very happy that we get to showcase the film in its original form. What's the fun in watching a zombie film if the cool parts are cut out," he smiles.
The makers had in fact presented the film to the Censors for the 'A' certificate and are glad that the film was passed without any cuts. "In any case, zombies naturally lend themselves to an A rating. But all the A rated parts in the film are actually in good humour and done in good 'taste'," adds Raj.
Kunal Khemu, one of the leads in the film, further reveals that the language bit had played its role in the film's final cut as well. "That's true," he says, "Other than the zombie genre, it is also the language that we were conscious about. We were going for an 'A' certificate anyways and I think its fair we have got one."
D.K. adds, "I am quite happy with the decision of the censors. This was always intended to be an A rated film. What fun in a zombie film if it's too clean? (smiles) The humor and other A rated elements in the film are done very tastefully and not meant to be offensive. Adults can have some unbridled fun and entertainment. Leave the kids at home."
Saif has the final word here, "I am happy that Censors have allowed us everything and given us the right certificate. It gives us hope and scope to make more movies!"
Guess with the team itself asking for it, for a change Censors had a relatively easier task in hand than getting into numerous rounds or arguments and counter arguments.
