Babumoshai Bandookbaaz has been cleared by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal with just eight cuts after a long battle between the censor board and the makers of the film.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz makers are heaving a sigh of relief today. Their several-week long battle with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has finally come to an end, after the film was sent to the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) for a review.
The film, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag in the lead roles, has been cleared by the FCAT with eight “minor and voluntary cuts”, said director Kushan Nandy.
“FCAT clears ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ with eight minor, voluntary cuts. Despite Pahlaj Nihalani’s last letter to stop it. See you on August 25,” Nandy tweeted on Wednesday.
