Vikram Bhatt’s Mr. X which opens next Friday could well be Emraan Hashmi’s first non-Adult film in a very long time.
The film apparently has no kisses, not even a passing peck.
Vouching for this, the film’s very pretty leading Amyra Dastur says, “The minute I met the director Vikram Bhatt, he told me it was a U/A film so I had no issues doing any scenes as long as it was within that UA boundary. I did refuse to wear a bikini, though.”
Considering the fact that the Bhatts had this time set out to consciously create a non-Adults product, the censor board’s chairperson Pahlaj Nihlani wonders what all the fuss about the film being delayed at the censors .
Says Nihalani, “Mr X is in fact the first film of the Bhatts that has not got into trouble at all. They came to us with the intention of getting a ‘UA’ certificate and that’s what they got. I suppose it is fashionable to blame the CBFC for every ailment that afflicts a film on release. We do not delay films. In fact we’ve cleared the latest film in the Avengers series two weeks before release. They submitted their film for certification well in advance. It’s very simple. You’ll get your censor certificate as early or late as you apply for it.”
