‘Hunterrr’ team asked to clean up its act
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, March 16 (IANS) The sex comedy “Hunterrr”, which is scheduled to open on Friday, has been asked by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to clean up its language.
A source from the CBFC said: “The trailer had been passed by the previous CBFC team and it contained a lot of objectionable language. There is nothing we could do about it. However, the language censored in the film was done according to suitability of the theme.
“We were aware that ‘Hunterrr’ was a sex comedy. We went along with the risque dialogues as much as we could.”
However, the CBFC suggested that beeps in the objectionable portions of the dialogue be re-recorded to avoid jerks in the soundtrack.
A source from the production house Phantom Films said: “We were asked to make changes in the dialogues, which we did. It was not that difficult since the actors are relatively less busy.
“If the film starred A-listers it would have been impossible to re-do the dubbing. But our very dedicated team of actors Gulshan Devaiah, Radhika Apte and Sai Tamhankar diligently went through the entire dubbing process again.
“We’ve substituted lines and words for what was seen by the CBFC as unacceptable verbal content. We’re now censored with an ‘A’ certificate and ready for release.”
