Ban on films poses problems for actors: Vivek Oberoi

Mumbai, Sep 12 (IANS) Actor Vivek Oberoi says a ban or stay should not be imposed on a film once it is cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification because it translates into trouble for filmmakers as well as actors.

He was reacting to the Punjab and Haryana High Court stay on the release of his adult-comedy "Grand Masti" in the two states. The film is slated for a Sep 13 release.

"I feel this should not happen. When you have censor board that gives certificate without objection, you should be allowed to release the film," Vivek told reporters here Wednesday at an album launch.

"Since huge money is spent on the film, so posing problems at the last minute can create a lot of problems. We (actors) face a lot of problems," he added.

"Either the censor board should censor the objectionable parts when it is shown to them, otherwise the film should be allowed to release," added the actor.

"Grand Masti", directed by Indra Kumar, is a sequel to 2004 film "Masti" and also features Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani among a host of other actors.

A lawyer filed a petition in the court claiming that the film contains vulgar dialogues and obscene content and that the promos degrade women.
