Yet again Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has come up with its sword to chop the creativity. This time the new victim of CBFC’s malevolent autocracy is Raveena Tandon’s upcoming film Maatr - The Mother.

According to a report published in dnaindia, the maker of the film had to re-edit the trailer as the CBFC asked for the cuts or an ‘A’ (Adults only) rating.

Producer Anjum Rizvi told dnaindia “Unless you show such scenes, how do you convey to the audience what the film is all about? Without these scenes, the film looks flat. CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) guidelines state that violence and blood cannot be shown in trailers seeking a ‘U’ or ‘UA’ rating. If insisted upon, it will get an ‘A’ certificate. We wanted to release the trailer in the coming week, so we had to cut some shots, redo it and finally, we got an U/A.”

Answering about the content of the film he said, “There are certain shots of women being slapped along with other scenes of violence that had to be let go of. I want to say that we are talking about women empowerment and violence against women and to what extent a woman can go to safeguard her modesty.”
