Shahid and Sonam Kapoor starrer long-awaited movie Mausam is set to release on September 16, but the five promotional trailers of the film are yet to get a clearance certificate from the Censor Board. According to reports, one of the trailers features a cow and the Censors is holding it back on the humanitarian grounds.
According to norms of the Animal Welfare Board (AWB), animals should not be ill-treated on screen. But the movie Mausam features a cow just passing by in a sequence. The Censor Board has ordered the bosses of Mausam to obtain no-objection certificate from the AWB in order to get clearance.
Talking about the issue of promotional trailers, producer Sheetal Talwar says that he is well aware that any shot of an animal in a film has to be cleared by the AWB and he is ready to get a clearance from the AWB for it. But Talwar asks why all the teaser trailers have been held back.
