Actor Alia Bhatt has come out in support of her mother Soni Razdan’s film “No Fathers in Kashmir“, which is has been stuck over certification issues, saying the movie is about compassion and the CBFC should lift the “ban” on it.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), however, has denied having imposed a ban on the movie, saying that it is “unfortunate” that “unwarranted pressure” is being put by spreading “misinformation of a ban”.

The board said any news of CBFC banning the film is “completely false” and all “responsible” people should take account. The movie has been with the CBFC for over six months and has been offered an ‘A’ certificate. Film makers have challenged the board’s decision and demanded a ‘U/A’ certification, according to media reports.

Alia Bhatt’s comments came Thursday after actor Swara Bhaskar came out in support of “No Fathers in Kashmir” director Ashvin Kumar.

“Really hope the CBFC would #lifttheban. It’s a film about empathy & compassion. Let’s give love a chance,” she said on Twitter.

The media reports claimed that the CBFC has given an ‘A’ certificate to “No Fathers in Kashmir” and the makers think it is a completely inappropriate decision.

The filmmakers have challenged censor board’s decision and appealed to a higher authority, the Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), to look into the matter, according to the reports.

Regional Officer CBFC Mumbai Tushar Karmarkar said, “We are disappointed with the misinformation being spread about the film ‘No fathers in Kashmir’. Any news of CBFC banning this film is completely false. And all responsible people should take account of that.”

“We want to again clarify that filmmakers of ‘No fathers in Kashmir’ have already been offered an adult certificate and the reasons thereof have clearly been communicated to them,” he told PTI.

“It’s unfortunate that unwarranted pressure is being put by spreading misinformation of a ‘ban’. CBFC will continue to do its work in a fair and transparent manner without succumbing to misguided pressure tactics,” Karmarkar said.

It was reported that fresh cuts are to be made in the film and Kumar has been running between the CBFC and the FCAT to get an ‘U/A’ certificate for his film as he thinks that his film deserves a wider audience.
