‘Noor’ gets U/A certificate, ‘Maatr’ makers submit revised version to CBFC

MUMBAI: Sonakshi Sinha-starrer “Noor” has received U/A certificate from Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) after making the changes advised by the censor board.

The CBFC had asked the makers of “Noor” to remove words like ‘dalit’, Barkha Dutt and a liquor brand’s name.

“We have raised objection to use of certain words like dalit and sex toy to be replaced by ‘adult site’,” an official from CBFC told reporters.

“Noor” is based on Saba Imtiaz’s novel “Karachi, You’re Killing Me!” and narrates the tale of scribe-writer Noor’s misadventures and love life as she navigates her way through Mumbai.

Director Sunhil Sippy told reporters that they have accepted CBFC’s decision.

“The objection raised by CBFC over certain words was not affecting the narrative of the film. So we have accepted it. We were told the use of Dalit is in reference to a community so it’s asked to be removed. We have got U/A certificate,” he told reporters. (AGENCIES)
