CBFC seeks answers from makers of ‘Bhavai’ for defying certification norms.

Despite this title change, the Pratik Gandhi starrer film kept receiving heavy backlash on social media with many demanding to ban the movie. Addressing the backlash, the makers had issued a statement on their Twitter handle. There, they clarified that the title and a controversial dialogue had been removed from the film and the promo as well. After makers of the upcoming movie ‘Bhavai‘ changed its earlier title ‘Raavan Leela‘ due to religious backlash and a legal defamation case, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has now sought an explanation from them for flouting certification rules and tampering with the film’s content.

CBFC seeks answers from makers of 'Bhavai' for defying certification norms.

With due respect to the concerns regarding the title of the promo and dialogue in the promo, we wish to clarify that the dialogue and the above title ‘Raavan Leela’ is not part of the film and has been removed from the promo as well respecting the sentiments of our viewers,” read an excerpt from the statement. It added, “The film ‘Bhavai’ has been approved and passed by the Censor Board of Film Certification under the ‘U’ category.

Now, the CBFC has strongly objected to this title change since it was done after the board granted the certificate to the film, which is in contravention of the Cinematograph (Certification) Rules. It came to CBFC’s notice that the makers of the film had released its trailer on YouTube in a distorted form, i.e. by changing the title and also by including the portions which were deposited with the CBFC as per the guidelines.
