Bollywood movie "Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend" (DZG) has been awarded a U/A certificate by the Censor Board. Japinder Kaur is very upset with the Board's suggestion to mute 63 words in the film.
The makers of "Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend" recently held a special screening for the officials of the Censor Board. After watching the movie, the Board reportedly asked the producers to mute around 63 words including saala and saali. It has issued a U/A Certificate to the film, which is scheduled to release in theatres across the globe on 20 March.
But this has not gone well with director Japinder Kaur, who has expressed his anger at the Censor Board. "If there is no thematic issue, I don't understand the problem in just picking up singular words that are local lingo," the director says in statement released to the media.
"To bring about any change in the rules, we should systematically lay down guidelines with time limits. The Censor should announce that the films going into production now should follow the new rules, not the ones that are already completed and have been in working progress in the past 1-2 years," Japinder Kaur adds.
Written by Manu Rishi, "Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend" is a romantic comedy entertainer that revolves around two innocent friends Dhruv and Happy. Dhruv is an IAS aspirant and takes a loan from a private company to buy a car to woo the girl. What happens when he is unable to repay the loan forms the crux of the story.
"Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend", which is produced by Manjeet Kaur and Tarnpreet Singh, features Divyendu Sharma and Prachi Mishra in the lead roles as Dhruv and his love interest Sakshi. Jackie Shroff, Ira Dubey and Pradhuman Singh have essayed other important roles in the film.
Yo Yo Honey Singh, Meet Bros, Anjjan, Tigerstyle and Dr Zeus have composed music for "Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend", which have already become a big hit with the masses. Subbaiah Kuttappa has handled the camera work for the film.
The film releases in theatres this Friday and it now remains to be seen how the viewers receive the movie.
