News agency IANS earlier reported that team Babumoshai Bandookbaaz didn't take their film to CBFC's revising committee as Pahlaj Nihalani told them that the committee would 'double' the number of cuts. "When our film director Kushan Nandy went to CBFC for the certification, Pahlaj Nihalani said, "You can go to Revising Committee, but we will double the cuts'. So, there's no point of going through that," Babumoshai Bandookbaaz writer Ghalib Asad Bhopali said.

Last month, FCAT had cleared Alankrita Shrivastava's Lipstick Under My Burkha after CBFC refused to pass the film.
Weeks ago, producer Kiran Shroff was ridiculed by the CBFC for having made a film 'like Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. "They said you can explain why such objectionable words and scenes are there in the film. A lady questioned me, 'How could you make a film like this despite being a woman yourself?' A gentleman said, 'How can she be a woman as she is wearing a pant and shirt?' I was stunned," Kiran Shroff told IANS.
Meanwhile, Pahlaj Nihalani was sacked from the post of CBFC chief. He has been replaced by adman-lyricist Prasoon Joshi.
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz also stars Divya Dutta, Murli Sharma, Jatin Goswami and Shraddha Das.
