Seems like the Censor Board (CB) has decided to up its ante when it
comes to derogatory remarks and violence in movies. The latest
target of CB is the much-talked-about film by Ram Gopal Varma
titled Rakta Charitra, starring actor Vivek Oberoi. The
film has run into problems courtesy its posters.
The posters of his upcoming film which have encountered the
censor board's ire as it mentions a quote from the epic
Mahabharata. The censor board has objected to the 'quote' from the
epic, which reads, 'Revenge is the purest emotion' - Mahabharata.
The censor board in Hyderabad objected to this and asked the
producers of the film, Cinergy and Ram Gopal Varma, to remove this
supposed reference to the Mahabharata.
While, the censor board has requested the removal of the quote,
it is interesting to know that all the poster have already been
designed and distributed. Now, if the producers decide to change
the posters then it will surely add up to their cost.
