National award winning filmmaker Onir is elated that his upcoming relationship drama Shab featuring two newcomers Ashish Bisht and Arpita Chatterjee and Raveena Tandon has got thumbs-up from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with no cuts at all.
Onir says, “I am delighted that my film has been left untouched, and pleasantly surprised that the CBFC asked for no cuts. Of course, it’s an ‘Adult’ film with adult situation. So it’s been appropriately certified.”
Onir was apprehensive about the CBFC’s response. He says, “I thought they’d ask for visual cuts. But they didn’t – only a few negligible audio cuts that I am happily making because if the CBFC had not cut anything, I’d have felt really insecure.”
Shab stars Raveena Tandon along with debutant actors Ashish Bisht and Arpita Chatterjee and is produced by Sanjay Suri, Bhavna Talwar, Onir and Mohan T. Mulani.The film is slated to release on 14th July
