Hunterrr asked to clean up its act by CBFC

The sex comedy Hunterrr which is scheduled to open this week has been asked by the CBFC to clean up its language.


Some of the shocking scandalous content in the trailer would also have to go in the film.


Says a source from the CBFC, “The trailer had been passed by the previous CBFC team and it contained a lot of objectionable language. There is nothing we could do about it. However the language censored in the film was done according to suitability of the theme. We were aware that Hunterrr was a sex comedy. We went along with the risque dialogues as much as we could.”


However, the CBFC suggested instead of beeps, the objectionable portions of the dialogues be re-recorded to avoid jerks in the soundtrack.


Says a source from the production house Phantom (who emerged triumphant last week with NH10), “We were asked to make changes in the dialogue, which we did. It was not that difficult since the actors are relatively less busy. If the film starred A-listers it would have been impossible to re-do the dubbing. But our very dedicated team of actors Gulshan Devaiya, Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar diligently went through the entire dubbing process again. We’ve substituted lines and words for what was seen by the CBFC as unacceptable verbal content. We’re now censored with an ‘A’ certificate and ready for release.”


In the meanwhile, a controversy has been broken out over Hunterrr co-producer Anurag Kashyap’s comments about the earlier sex comedy Grand Masti. Kashyap’s statement that he wouldn’t see Grand Masti even if he was paid 5 crore rupees to do so has not gone down with the Grand Masti writer Milap Zaveri, who has blasted Kashyap.


An unnamed representative of the production house Phantom says, “Anurag loves to shoot off his mouth. We’ve no control over what he says. We do not stand by his comments on Grand Masti. It was directed by a veteran filmmaker Indra Kumar whom we all grew up admiring. Hunterrr is a sex comedy too. There is no need to act holier-than-thou about our sex comedy being morally superior to others. When naked, everyone looks the same.”
