Raajneeti in censor trouble

Uncertainty loomed over the release of Prakash Jha’s political drama Raajneeti this Friday, with the Censor Board having objections to certain scenes, which are said to be about Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.

The film has been in the midst of controversies with reports that Katrina Kaif’s character has some resemblance to Gandhi’s life.

Jha, however, has been insisting that his film has nothing to do with real life politics or politicians. "I have just made a film about an election. It is not about Bihar or Sonia Gandhi or the Congress, so I don’t understand the whole controversy," said the filmmaker.

Asked if the Censor Board has taken any decision on issuing a certificate, its Regional Officer Vinayak Azad told PTI "Actually the movie is not with us. It is with the Film Certification Tribunal so they are to take a decision on it."

The film also starring Ajay Devgn, Ranbir Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Manoj Bajpai is set to hit theatres on June 4.(PTI)
