The Censor Board has issued an 'A' certificate to Rani
Mukherji's upcoming film Mardaani. According to the reports,
producer Aditya Chopra tried to convince the
Censor Board for granting U/A certificate but failed to do so.
Aditya Chopra, the YRF head honcho, expressed his opinion and
said children above the age of 12 can watch the movie but the
Censor Board refused to issue U/A certificate and further added
that the film is based on an adult issue.
The film Mardaani revolves around the issue of human
trafficking and forcing teenage girls in flesh trade. Rani Mukherji
will be seen playing a police officer in the film. Directed by
Pradeep Sarkar the movie is scheduled
to release on August 22, 2014.
Mardaani will be Rani Mukherji's first release after
her marriage with Aditya Chopra. The actress will be seen doing
action sequences in the film. Mardaani is the first YRF
film which received an A certificate from the Censir Board.
