I will fight with censor board for `Kya Super Kool Hain Hum`: Ekta Kapoor
TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor is at loggerheads with the censor board over her upcoming film Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, Kyaa Super.... had run into controversy because of its adult content as the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) gave its trailer an `A` certificate.
"I feel I am censor`s favourite punching bag but I don`t blame them. The problem is that the censor board is under huge pressure. Today anyone can file a PIL on a film. They have to answer why they passed the film," Ekta told PTI.
The CBFC refused to show the trailer of Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum in theatres till three scenes from the film were deleted. To deal with the situation, the makers uploaded the uncut trailer on the Internet.
But the filmmaker is determined to get the three scenes back in the film.
"I want to have scenes back in the film. They are fun scenes. We have a deadline till next Tuesday or Wednesday because after that we have a release. I hope they understand our point of view," she said.
"There are three scenes, dialogues and name changing for a character in the film and lots of other issues. When it is an adult film why is there a censorship on it as well?," Ekta said.
The three scenes that the CBFC objected to include Anupam Kher`s spoof on late Satyen Kappu`s character from Sholay, Riteish Deshmukh commenting on female anatomy and a spoof on John Abraham`s debut home production film Vicky Donor. Also, some Muslim groups have objected to dog`s name in the film.
The movie is a sequel to the 2005 release Kyaa Kool Hain Hum and brings together Tusshar Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh after seven years. It hits the screens July 27.
Ekta`s last home production The Dirty Picture also had undergone several problems with the CBFC before its release and afterwards.
Vidya Balan starrer The Dirty Picture was denied permission to be aired on television.
