Ekta bypasses Revising Committee, takes Great Grand Masti to Tribunal

After the Central Board of Certification (CBFC) refused to pass Great Grand Masti last month owing to the film’s extreme vulgar content (Censor Board rejects Great Grand Masti, Jan 28), producer Ekta Kapoor and director Indra Kumar have now knocked on the doors of the Tribunal. 

The interesting bit is that they have skipped approaching the Revising Committee (RC) altogether.

A source says, “Ekta felt that the RC would probably reject the film, much like the Censor Board. So she saw no point in going to them and just delaying the entire process. She decided to take the matter directly to the Tribunal.”

Last month, Mahesh Bhatt too did the same thing with his production Love Games. When the Censor Board asked for 18 cuts in the Vikram Bhatt-directed erotic thriller, the spitfire filmmaker directly approached the Tribunal, who passed the film with just one cut.

And then, Prakash Jha followed suit with his Priyanka Chopra starrer Gangaajal, where he too was let off with least number of cuts
