Vishal Bharadwaj upset for 'Kaminey'


Shahid Kapur and Priyanka Chopra starrer ‘Kaminey’ is about to hit the theatre on August 14 and director Vishal Bharadwaj is upset and disappointed for getting “A” certificate from the Censor Board for Film Certification (CBFC).

"It was injustice to us. There is no abusive language used in the film and the violence is of 'comic book kind'.

Kaminey is the strongest word used in the entire story. The CBFC has ambiguous categories of rating systems," the director said.

"There is a line in the film where a character is asked where does he come from. The character says Pilibhit. There were no political overtones to the line. But, the Censor Board asked me to edit Pilibhit saying that it is a sensitive constituency," Bharadwaj said.

On getting objection for using the particular name of place, Vishal had changed the city name form Pilibhit to Barabanki.

Vishal who is known to make realistic cinema like Maqbool and Omkara is quite depressed with the decision of the board.

"I consider film making as a work of art rather than a business proposition," he said adding in Kaminey he had tried a new structure of story telling. The filmmaker can surprise the audience with logic," he added.
