Mumbai, Sep 12:

Vikram Bhatt says he is tired of fighting with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and that he is not a crusader, but just a helpless filmmaker.

Bhatt has been asking for an explanation as the promos of his forthcoming film “Raaz Reboot” received U/A certificate for theatres and got an A certificate for TV, which is a watered down version.

Bhatt told IANS: “I am appalled. I am damn tired. I don’t know if I can add anything to it. Why do I need a censor certificate of TV? ‘Aahat’ and ‘Fear Files’ don’t require certificates, but my 20-second promo which is not that scary requires a certificate. What do I say? We are not a priority?”

He added: “How can I bring a change? I am screaming out loud alone. I am a filmmaker and not a crusader. If I was a crusader I would have done something. I am just a helpless filmmaker who is finding it difficult to showcase this promotional material.”

He also shared that he is just demanding for a logical explanation from CBFC.

He said: “I am only asking for standardised kind of logic… just give me some logic. Explain it to me. I will understand. They are only saying that they cannot allow this. Why you cannot allow, is a debate.”

“Raaz Reboot” features Emraan Hashmi, Kriti Kharbanda and Gaurav Arora. Produced by Vishesh Films, the film will release on September 16. (IANS)
