John Abraham's Satyamev Jayate Fails To Get U Certificate

It's an irony of sorts, but Bollywood mein sab kuch hota hai. John Abraham's upcoming film Satyamev Jayate, helmed by Milap Zaveri, has got an A certificate. The decision has come as a slight surprise.

Milap who directed the sex comedy Mastizaade and wrote Grand Masti, Masti and Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3 may have thought that he could bring the kids in with Satyamev Jayate. However, talking to, he maintains, "No, I had a feeling that Satyamev Jayate will get an A certificate only."

Great Grand Masti Poster also has it that Milap and the film's producer Nikkhil Advani approached the Revising Committee so that the decision of the Examining Committee could be reversed- but in vain.

A source says, "Obviously they had to try. There have been many instances in the past when after few changes, the film has managed to get a U from the former A that it was granted."

So why has Milap got an A? Is it also true that certain lyrics were chopped from a song because the Censor Board found those inflammatory? "I have used background music in that portion. A few lyrics of a certain song had to be deleted," Milap confirms.

"Satyamev Jayate is not for kids. It has violence, no doubt. It is not a popcorn film. There is a very important Muharram sequence where there is blood. John kills corrupt cops in the film. It is targetted at the mass audience. It makes a very strong statement against corruption and violence on women," he adds.
