Kangana Ranaut’s Simran is all set to hit theatres next week on September 15. Prior to this, the film went to the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) and during this, the Board has pulled up the makers of the Kangana starrer for usage of cuss words and abuses. Ranaut plays the role of a Gujarati NRI who is a kleptomaniac. In the film, the actress is shown speaking her heart out When CBFC reviewed Simran, they were apparently not too happy with the language used in the film.
A source from the creative team of Simran told DNA, “Kangana’s character speaks from the heart and talks first, thinks later. There’s no filter for her. When the CBFC saw the film, they did not appreciate the profusion of gaalis and colourful language. ” What remains to be seen is will director Hansal Mehta accept this? Or will he get his film passed by the Tribunal like his last film Aligarh? Well, let’s wait and watch what the filmmaker does this time.
The film has been surrounded with a lot of controversies. In May this year, the film’s writer Apurva Asrani accused Kangana of snatching his credit in a Facebook post. Amidst this, Sameer Gautam Singh opened up about how Apurva tried to take writing credits for the National Award-winning Shahid while he was only the editor. Director Hansal Mehta stepped in and supported the actress in this controversy. Asrani has called Mehta spineless for choosing Kangana Ranaut over him and the two who worked together for years went separate ways.
