CBFC finds ‘Santa Banta Pvt Ltd.’ inappropriate

The makers of ‘Santa Banta Pvt Ltd.’ are facing troubles from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC ) who have received a petition, alleging that it projects the Sikh community in defamatory and demeaning manner. Considering the seriousness of the matter, the board had raised the complaint to Delhi High court and the latest development is that the allegations against the movie and its makers has been disposed. The court has directed the board to treat the petition as representation. While the final decision is left on the board committee, it will be interesting to see if this Boman Irani and Vir Das starrer makes it to the theatres on April 22.
