Prasoon Joshi Bans The Very First Film Under His Tenure As CBFC Chief

Published on 24 August, 2017 at 5:30 pm By

Some days back, we were eternally grateful to Smriti Irani for sacking the godfather of sanskaars, Pahlaj Nihalani, and making acclaimed lyricist, Prasoon Joshi, the new chief of CBFC.

But as Joshi starts his innings, it seems that filmmakers won’t have an easy ride with him either because he just banned the very first film under his review. A Punjabi film, ‘Toofan Singh’, has been refused certification on the grounds of excessive violence.

This movie has been directed by Baghal Singh, and it is a story of a rebel, Ranjit Bawa, who adopts terrorist tactics to fight corruption in the Indian bureaucracy.

His character is solely inspired by the revolutionary life of the martyr, Bhagat Singh.

A close source from the CBFC told DNA,

Toofan Singh is a terrorist, who goes on a rampage killing corrupt cops and politicians. And they’ve compared him to Bhagat Singh. The film is brutal and anarchic. We couldn’t empathize with its message of brute power, let alone grant it a censor certificate.

The movie was earlier set to release on August 4.

 

The film stars Ranjit Bawa and Shefali Sharma in the lead. Veteran television actor, Avtar Gill, is also a part of the film.

Watch the trailer of the movie here:

Surprisingly, the film has already been released overseas, while its future in India is still uncertain. People are definitely not happy with the ban:
