Film on demonetisation finally released after cuts

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Demonetisation-themed feature film "Shunyota", which had been stalled by the censor board regional office, has finally released today with six cuts.

"We got the CBFC nod on April 2 after effecting six cuts in the film and I think the cuts will not diminish the concept of the film. All's well that ends well," director Suvendu Ghosh told PTI.

The cuts include comments on effects of by principal characters and some portions of conversation between a mother and her daughter.

The film with U/A certification has been released across 26 theatres in West Bengal.

A CBFC regional office spokesperson said, "The chairperson of CBFC has decided on the matter. The film has been cleared as per recommendations of the examining committee."

CBFC regional office had examined the film on March 27. Since there were differences of opinion among the members of the committee regarding certificate, the case was referred to CBFC chairperson.
