Alleging that she is censor's "favourite punching bag", TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor is again at loggerheads with the censor board for her upcoming film 'Kya Super Kool Hain Hum' and has said she will not give up easily.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, 'Kya Super....' has already run into controversy because of its adult content and its trailer has also been given an 'A' certificate by the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
"I share a love-hate relation with Censor Board. I feel I am censor's favourite punching bag. I don't blame them. The problem is that the censor board is under huge pressure like anybody can file a PIL on a film. They have to answer why they passed the film. The agendas are never questioned but the action gets," Ekta told PTI.
The CBFC refused to show the trailer of 'Kya Super Kool Hain Hum' in theatres till three scenes from it are not deleted. To deal with the situation, the makers uploaded the uncut trailer on the Internet.
But the filmmaker is determined to fight with the censor board for her upcoming film. "I am going to fight till the last minute. I would want to have scenes back in the film. They are fun scenes. We
have a deadline to fight till next Tuesday or Wednesday because after that we have a release. I hope they understand our point of view," she said.
"There are three scenes, dialogues and name changing for a character in the film and lots of other issues. When itis an adult film why is there a censorship on it as well. The issue is not about we going with this adult comedy film but will some political issue happen or not," Ekta said.
"We have liberals and orthodox living in the same society. So we have those who want society to progress and some want to confine to old traditions. We are constantly threatened by two diametrically opposite ideologies, so the censor board has to keep both in mind," she said. PTI
