Madan Patel's controversial movie Sathyananda has been
cleared by the Regional Censor Board. The film has bagged 'A'
certificate after undergoing several cuts.
The movie landed in a controversy when the title and posters
resembled Swami Nithyananda for which the latter filed an
Interlocutory Application seeking to restrain producer Madan Patel
from releasing the film Sathyananda. His counsel KV
Dhananjaya had argued that the producer had promoted the film in
his name and also had launched verbal attacks on him.
Later, the court directed the Revising Committee to take the
final call on the issue. The 10-member team headed by veteran
actress Arundhati Nag watched the movie recently and passed the
movie with the 'A' certificate. However, they have asked the makers
of Sathyananda to chop the controversial scenes.
Meanwhile, Madan Patel has said that he is happy with the
outcome and clarified that the movie is not based on Swami
Nithyananda rather it is about those who fool the people in the
name of god.
