It has just been few days since Udta Punjab, which was produced by Anurag Kashyap has released. It has created one of the biggest controversies in Bollywood as it got into issues of certification with the censor board and later got the film released by going to the court. Now there seems to be no end to Anurag’s problems with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) as it has refused to certify Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Haraamkhor’ objecting to its theme which deals with a student-teacher romance.
The Central Board of Film Certification has denied certifying Nawzuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Haraamkhor’ on the grounds that the illicit relationship between a teacher and a teenage student is not acceptable in Indian society.
According to a report published in Times of India, “Kashyap confirmed that the producers were planning to appeal to FCAT against the CBFC decision.”
The film is a love story that revolves around a delicate relationship between a guru and his shishya. ‘Haramkhor’ also marks the debut of Shweta Tripathi who plays the role of a school student while Nawaz will essay the role of a teacher.
