'72 Hoorain' Trailer

In response to recent speculations, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has dismissed claims that the trailer for "72 Hoorain" was denied certification, clarifying that the matter is currently undergoing the necessary procedures. 

The alleged refusal of a censor certificate for the film's trailer sparked discussions surrounding creative freedom and censorship. 

Ashoke Pandit, one of the film's co-producers, had previously stated that the censor board declined to certify the movie's trailer, slated for release on July 7.

Addressing the situation, the CBFC stated, "Misleading reports have been circulating in certain sections of the media, claiming that a film and its trailer titled 'Bahattar Hoorain (72 Hoorain)' was refused certification by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). In contrast to these reports, the CBFC asserts that the film 'Bahattar Hoorain (72 Hoorain)' was granted an 'A' certification, with the certificate being issued on 4-10-2019."

Recognizing the director's exceptional vision, the film garnered the prestigious National Film Award for Best Direction in 2021.

According to the CBFC, the filmmakers formally submitted the trailer for certification on June 19, adhering to the guidelines outlined in Section 5B(2) of the Cinematograph Act, 1952. After a meticulous examination process, the applicant was requested to provide necessary documentary submissions, which were duly received and reviewed. Subsequently, the certification was granted with certain modifications in place.

Therefore, any dissemination of misleading reports regarding this subject should be avoided, as the official proceedings are ongoing, as stated in the note.
