Published on 26 May, 2017 at 8:22 pm By

The reason why Nihalani has asked filmmakers Khusboo Ranka and Vinay Shukla to get PM Modi and other’s NOC is that the movie has used real footage of the said leaders in the film and one can’t be feature political leaders in a film without their consent.

Among other changes, the Board has also asked the movie makes to mute all references to BJP and Congress in the film.

 

The Outlook



When asked about the NOC, Nihalani explained this was not for the first time that it was being done as even Karan Johar was asked to get an NOC when he referenced actor Raveena Tandon’s name in his film and makers of Jolly LLB 2 used Salman Khan’s name in their film.

Explaining his decision Nihalani said that Jolly LLB 2 had used Bata’s name in their film and the term not being deleted let to a lawsuit filed by the shoe-manufacturing company to which they made CBFC a party.

Kejriwal’s documentary chronicles the years from the time ‘India Against Corruption’ movement started and resulted in the formation of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the BJP’s forming the government at the Centre.
