We often see quite a few movies that face difficulty in the society. Even after the movie receives a nod from the censor board, there are various controversies that arise for some films when their release is opposed. Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi says a ban should not be imposed on a film once it is cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification because it translates into trouble for filmmakers as well as actors.

He was reacting to the Punjab and Haryana High Court stay on the release of his adult-comedy Grand Masti in the two states. A lawyer had filed a petition in the court claiming that the film contains vulgar dialogues and obscene content and that the promos degrade women."I feel this should not happen. When you have censor board that gives certificate without objection, you should be allowed to release the film," Vivek said at the album launch of the movie.

"Since huge money is spent on the film, so posing problems at the last minute can create a lot of problems. We face a lot of problems," he added.

The 37-year-old actor did have a reasonable explaination as to why films should not be banned after the certification. "Either the censor board should censor the objectionable parts when it is shown to them, otherwise the film should be allowed to release," he said.

Grand Masti, which is directed by Indra Kumar, is a sequel to 2004 film Masti and is set to hit the theatres on September 13. Along with Vivek, the movie also features Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani in the main roles.
