Pahlaj Nihalani lashes out at Mukesh Bhatt


Mukesh Bhatt feels the CBFC belongs in the garbage can?

Many people would have the same opinion about some of the films he produces. It’s all a matter of perception. But why does he suddenly have these hate pangs about the CBFC?

Because you gave a ‘UA’ certification to the beloved children’s story The Jungle Book?

Correction. I didn’t. The CBFC, an organization appointed by the Ministry Of Information & Broadcasting ministry, of which I happen to be the chairperson, thought it sensible and wise to grant

The Jungle Book a ‘UA’ certificate.

But your board member Mr Ashoke Pundit has been quoted as saying the decision was yours, not the CBFC’s?

I have nothing to say about his comments. But as a board member he is not allowed to give out confidential information on a public platform, especially when it is not true.

Coming back to Mukesh Bhatt’s objections to the ‘UA’ for The Jungle Book

Why is he talking about others’ films? Didn’t have his own release Love Games this Friday? Why is he so bothered about The Jungle Book‘s certification when the producer Sidharth Roy

Kapur has gone on record to say he has no problem with ‘UA’ for The Jungle Book? And there’s one thing that people opposed to the ‘UA’ certification for The Jungle Book need to

realize.

What is that?

The film has been given the same rating all over the world in the UK, USA, Canada, and the Philippines. In the US and UK it’s been given a ‘PG’, parental guidance, rating which is the equivalent of

our ‘UA’. Would Mukesh Bhatt like to throw the American and British censor board in the garbage can as well?
