This Friday's big release, the Akshay Kumar starrer Khatta
Meetha got itself embroiled in a controversy earlier this
week. After the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) viewed
and cleared the film on July 13, a certain party lodged a complaint
against clearing the film due to the presence of a scene in which
an elephant is shown pulling the road-roller.
The complainant seems to have found the scene objectionable as
it depicts cruelty towards animals and hence asked the CBFC to
order the makers to delete the scene. Such a step would have
resulted in delaying the dispatch of overseas prints and could have
even pushed the release date further. However, things seem to have
been sorted now.
When we got in touch with the PR of the film he said, "Yes there
was a small issue but it has been sorted now. In fact the overseas
prints have also been delivered."
