Controversy Surrounding “72 Hoorain” Trailer as CBFC Rejects Certification; Producer Ashoke Pandit Responds, Watch His Reaction

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has refused to certify the trailer of the upcoming film 72 Hoorain, which delves into the repercussions of violent extremism. The film has won a National Award and has been recognized at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), but the CBFC has denied certification to the trailer without providing any reason.

The film’s producers, Ashoke Pandit and Gulab Singh Tanwar, have expressed their disappointment and have appealed to the Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Anurag Thakur, and CBFC Chairperson, Prasoon Joshi, to intervene. They have also said that they will be taking legal action against the CBFC.

The director of the film, Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, has said that the trailer carries the same essence of the film and that it does not target any religion or hurt religious sentiments. He has urged people to watch the film before jumping to any conclusions.

The CBFC’s decision to reject the trailer of 72 Hoorain has raised concerns about the freedom of expression in India. The film’s producers have said that they are being targeted for making a film that deals with a sensitive topic. They have also said that the CBFC’s decision is unfair and that it is setting a dangerous precedent. The film is scheduled to be released on July 7, 2023. It remains to be seen whether the CBFC will change its decision and allow the trailer to be released.

The CBFC is a government body that is responsible for certifying films for public exhibition in India. It has the power to refuse certification to films that it deems to be harmful or offensive.

The CBFC’s decision to reject the trailer of 72 Hoorain has been criticized by some as being censorship. They argue that the trailer does not contain any harmful or offensive content, and that the CBFC’s decision is an attempt to suppress freedom of expression.
