Vishal, Ekta refuse to show ETD to Women’s commission

Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta Kapoor, the producers of Ek Thi Daayan, were summoned by the National Commission for Women (NCW). They wanted to see the film before its release on the basis of a complaint filed by Wiccan priestess Ipshita Roy Chakraverti. But the makers believe that the Censor Board is the highest authority and showing the film to some other commission will be inappropriate.

Commenting on the same, Vishal Bhardwaj says, "The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has already viewed and certified the film. They are the final authority as per the law of the land and showing it to other bodies, after they have cleared it, undermines the role and position of the CBFC."

The makers have further clarified that the film is not derogatory towards anyone and a disclaimer to this effect has been added before the commencement of the film. Bhardwaj adds, "Of the seven members who watched our film, six were women!"

Ek Thi Daayan will release on April 19, 2013.
