'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' gets FCAT clearance with eight minor cuts
Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer "Babumoshai Bandookbaaz" has been cleared by the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT) with "eight minor, voluntary cuts". Nawazuddin Siddiqui shared this information on his twitter page
Thanks FCAT for clearing #BabumoshaiBandookbaaz with minor voluntary cuts. The film will now release with its original flavour on 25th Aug— Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) August 16, 2017
Pahlaj Nihalani-led Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had initially ordered 48 cuts in the movie, after giving an 'A' certificate.
According to Mid Day reports, Nandy also thanked Indian Film and Television Directors Association (IFTDA), including directors such as Vikramaditya Motwane, Satish Kaushik and Abhishek Chaubey, and the media for their support.
"Babumoshai..." had run into trouble with the CBFC, which has raised objections to the cuss words and some scenes in the film.
Nawazuddin defended the movie saying the abuses in the film were justified as they make the characters look authentic.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Bidita Bag, will release on August 25, 2017.
