Mumbai, April 22 (IANS) The much-awaited television premiere Sunday of "The Dirty Picture", which has an adult certification, has been stalled, one of the actors in the film has said.

The film, which is reportedly based on the story of late southern actress Silk Smitha and fetched actress Vidya Balan her first National Award, was to be shown at 12 noon and at 8 p.m. Sunday on Sony TV. However, it is not being shown Sunday, according to Tusshar Kapoor, one of the actors in the film.

Sony ran a ticker saying: "For unavoidable reasons we regret to inform that the film 'The Dirty Picture' will not be telecast today. Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted'.

The film also features Naseeruddin Shah and Emraan Hashmi.

"Really unfortunate that after all the necessary cuts and a valid UA certificate, The Dirty Picture could not be telecast today on Sony TV," Tusshar tweeted.

"In light of recent events that exposed the dark side of Bollywood, 'The Dirty Picture' was well timed as it depicts a similar harsh reality!

"Sad that inspite of being acclaimed for it's entertaining realism & having won 3 National Awards the regulatory forces have stalled the show," Tusshar posted.

The film, which is replete with bold scenes, had undergone 56 cuts to enable it being shown on Indian television. It was given a UA certification for being shown on Indian television.
