Happy with A certificate for 'Satyameva Jayate': Nikkhil Advani

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Nikkhil says the 'A' certificate for Milap Zaveri's anti-corruption "Satyameva Jayate" is most welcome. The violence, the CBFC felt, was "extremely relevant".

"The Adults certificate for our is most welcome. My co-producers T-Series and I are very happy with it. In fact, the members of the censor board recommended that we take the 'A' certificate to avoid any cuts. The violence, they felt, was extremely relevant and not at all gratuitous," said

However, most producers prefer to make the cuts rather than limit their audience with an 'A' certificate.

Not the producers and of "Satyameva Jayate".

"T-Series and I spoke to our We wanted an Adults certification because it is not a for the young or the squeamish. It is a violent and brutal film as it blows the lid off corruption.

"We wanted to make a hard-hitting statement and we wanted to provide a solution to corruption. It may not be everybody's cup of tea. But like I said, 'Satyameva Jayate' is not for those who cannot digest violence," said

He doesn't feel his film is limited by the violence.

"Not at all. In fact, I want to thank the CBFC for suggesting we take an 'A' with no cuts. It is very liberating for us to go with an 'Adults' certificate in the theatres. 'Satyameva Jayate' is a film for adults. But the violence is remedial in a society that has sickened."
