Pahlaj-Nihlani-[tps_footer]The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) headed by Pahlaj Nihalani, is back at doing what it does the best.

After losing the case to Abhishek Chaubey’s Udta Punjab in the Bombay High Court, for which it demanded 89 cuts, the CBFC has again demanded something similar from another film.

This time, the Board has objected to film maker Abhishek Jawkar’s upcoming crime thriller set in Goa. They have demanded around 50 edits in the film, called Missing On A Weekend.

Actor Akash Bathija, who played the role of Arjun Kapoor’s friend in Ishaqzaade, is also playing a role in the said in the above mentioned thriller. Confirming the news, he said, “The Censor Board has been very harsh towards us. They want us to mute the word ‘Goa’ whenever and wherever it’s mentioned with reference to the drug mafia. The CBFC’s argument is that it shows Goa in bad light,”

The movie was earlier scheduled to release on June 24, which later turned to July 1, and is now set to get postponed again.

However, reports are that the makers are going to appeal to the Board again.

We wonder how much it is going to work, though![/tps_footer]
