‘Maatr’ Gets Censor Clearance in Time for Release
The censor board has acted swiftly, and so have the producers of Maatr. The controversial film on rape which was refused censor certification on Saturday, obtained clearance on Tuesday afternoon, thereby paving the way for its release on time this Friday.
Apparently the producers did something awfully smart.
That did the trick. Maatr was cleared with some cuts for ‘Adults Only’.
When asked why the queue had been broken, Nihalani said:
From the time I took over as the chairperson of the CBFC, it has been my endeavour to ensure that no producers incur any losses because of the CBFC. We understand Maatr is a small meaningful film and any delay would be financially burdensome for the producers. My entire Examining Committee co-operated to ensure a swift certification for the film.
