Vishal Bhardwaj Refuses To Accept 'A' Rating For 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola'Movie Talkies – Sat 15 Dec, 2012 12:00 AM IST
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, is set in Haryana. In the movie, actor Pankaj Kapur's character, Mandola, has a signature line, Paincho Paincho, which ke keeps mumbling to himself. Vishal has maintained that it is not an abusive word and that it is meant to be hilarious and not offensive. The Censor Board's regional officer has given the film an 'A' rating, which Vishal has not accepted and he will be going to the Revising Committee on December 17.
Vishal will request the Censor Board to have a look at the film again. He feels that the society has to come out of this hypocrisy. He also stated that the flavour of the region should not be killed for a word that sounds like an abuse.
