- The film's producer was also humiliated by some Board members
- Censor Board ordered 48 cuts to the film despite certifying it 'A'
- Babumoshai Bandookbaaz is expected to release on August 25
Ghalib Asad Bhopali is hopeful that FCAT will be able to give them 'justice.' He told IANS: "We are expecting justice for our film and I am sure it will be a fair judgment because the panelists of the Tribunal come from different walks of life. On the other hand, in CBFC, there are five members from the same socio-cultural background and, therefore, their approach towards the understanding of judging a film and sentiments of our audience is not wide. I think FCAT has better representatives than CBFC and, therefore, we hope for a better judgment."
Of her encounter with the Censor Board, Kiran Shroff told IANS that a female member of the board was astonished that she (being a woman) produced a film laced with explicit scenes to which another (male) Board member said: 'How can she be a woman as she is wearing a pant and shirt?' "I was stunned," Kiran Shroff said.
