CBFC disagrees banning ‘No fathers in Kashmir’: On Thursday, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) clarified that it hasn’t imposed any band on Oscar-nominated director Ashvin Kumar’s ‘No Father in Kashmir.’
Earlier in the day, Alia Bhatt, whose mother Soni Razdan, took the help of social media to request the CBFC to “lift the ban,” who also stars in the film.
She tweeted saying, “Was soo looking forward to mom’s @nofathers_movie #nofathersinkashmir!! @Soni_Razdan @ashvinkumar & team worked super hard for this honest teens love story in Kashmir.
Really hope the CBFC would #lifttheban. It’s a film about empathy & compassion.. let’s give love a chance!”
Though, according to Tushar Karmarkar, Regional Officer, CBFC, Mumbai, the news of the ban is “completely wrong.
He said, “We are disappointed with the misinformation being spread about the film ‘No fathers in Kashmir’. Any news of CBFC banning this film is completely false. And all responsible people should take account of that.”
Karmakar on the matter further said, “filmmakers of ‘No fathers in Kashmir’ have already been offered an adult certificate, and the reasons thereof have clearly been communicated to them. It’s unfortunate that unwarranted pressure is being put by spreading misinformation of a ‘ban’.”
The film is about a love story of two 16-year-olds who are individually in search of their missing father. The film stars Razdan, Anshuman Jha, and Kulbulshan Kharbanda.
