CBFC should only certify films: Sunny Deol

New Delhi, June 17 (IANS) Actor-filmmaker Sunny Deol, whose long-awaited film “Mohalla Assi” is yet to see the light of the day after facing a censor board hurdle, on Friday said that CBFC should only be allowed to certify a film and not try to stop it from releasing.

After fighting against the censor board, filmmaker Abhishek Chaubey’s “Udta Punjab” finally got released on Friday. However, “Mohalla Assi”, directed by Chandra Prakash Dwivedi, has not been issued any certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) due to the use of abusive words in the film.

Asked whether “Mohalla Assi” makers are planning to go against CBFC’s decision after the release of “Udta Punjab”, Sunny said: “The film should have released till now. It will definitely get released some day. The producers are fighting for it. There is nothing in it which needs to be censored. We should not try to stop a film’s release.

“From the creative point of view, we always feel that our film doesn’t get to face any problem but then there is a board sitting there to correct us. If they are correct or not, this war has been going on since long time. There is no conclusion to this war.”

Talking about the certification issue of “Mohalla Assi”, Sunny said: “I feel end of the day after the film has been made, they (CBFC) should only give certificate to the film and not stop its release. What they should see is that if the film is a fictitious one or not.

“We should imply censorship on the internet and television which people misuse a lot in order to say anything to anybody.”

Sunny, who was last seen on the big screen in “Ghayal Once Again”, which will have its world television premiere on Zee Cinema on June 26, said currently he is working towards his son’s debut film.

“Right now, my priority is working towards my son’s film. I’m working that out,” added Sunny, who has two sons – Karan and Rajvir.

Apart from acting in “Ghayal Once Again”, Sunny also directed the film. He says both the jobs have their own aspects.

“I think direction is tougher because there you have to command a whole army. As an actor, you do your work and you do something wrong, then the director is there to stop you,” Sunny said.

The “Gadar” star is currently working in films like “Bhaiyyaji Superhitt” and the remake of Marathi film “Poster Boyz”, in which he will be seen alongside his brother Bobby Deol.
