Mihir Joshi alleges Censor Board bleeped out the word `Bombay` from his song
The Central Board of Film Certification has courted yet another controversy with its recent decision.
New Delhi: The Central Board of Film Certification has courted yet another controversy with its recent decision.
According to reports, the CBFC had issues with the word Bombay in Mihir Joshi's song `Sorry..` referring to Mumbai, after which the word was dropped from the song.
The CBFC had objections to the use of the word Bombay since now it is known as Mumbai.
The Mumbai based musician has alleged that CBFC had omitted the word Bombay from his song which was released last year in May.
The music video was allowed to be aired on television after the censor board beeped out the word Bombay from it.
The 33 year-old musician and singer expressed his disappointment in a tweet.
I love Mumbai and loved Bombay. My song was about injustice to women. NOT this "controversy". I mean no offence to anyone. Good night folks.
