Rani Mukerji's Mardaani which won rave reviews, but was out of reach for many as Central Board of Film Certification was unwilling to clear it for television viewing. The film's stark violence and language was bone of contention between examining committee members of the CBFC which hindered it's telecast on TV.
It has however, now been cleared by the Board's revising committee with a U/A certificate and a cut, hence facilitating it's telecast on television.
Nandini Sardesai of the revising committee said, "We have cleared the film with a U/A certificate and have asked them to tone down a nude scene by about 50 per cent."
Mardaani, which dealt with child trafficking, is the first Yashraj film to get an A certificate. The producers sought U/A certificate requesting CBFC that it was important for kids to watch the film, but the request was turned down. ?India Today
