"This is to get the facts straight and not create any controversy when there is none.Currently the trailers/promos of this film have been certified and the modifications have all been mutually agreed upon by the makers. The due certification process will be followed for the film as done for all films under the purview of the CBFC," Karmarkar added.
A source adds that the film won't face major hurdles when it comes up for censor certification.
"Balasaheb Thackeray was known to speak his mind on public forums. All his controversial remarks are available in the public domain. So what is the need for the CBFC to tamper with or modify statements that are already public knowledge?" asks the source close to the CBFC."
