Just when we found out that Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif will be back together on screen after a long time in Anurag Basu‘s Jagga Jasoos, the film managed to be in news for facing troubles with release dates. Well, it seems that the troubles are not yet over. After a difficult journey so far when the film finally got ready to release on April 7 next year, another thorn stroke midway causing trouble to the film.
When Jagga Jasoos‘s trailer was all set to flash in front of the people on December 23 with Aamir’s Dangal, the Censor Board stalled the trailer release bringing the film’s producers in a state of disappointment.
As per sources, Dangal has been certified as ‘U’ and is open to viewers of all age groups whereas, Jagga Jasoos is certified as’ UA’ which means the juveniles will have to be accompanied by adults. The law also states that any ‘UA’ certified film’s trailer cannot be released with a ‘U’ certified film which is why Ranbir–Katrina‘s Jagga Jasoos got stalled.
The producers of Jagga Jasoos have no option left than simply abiding by the law. They’ll have to either submit another trailer that can be passed for a ‘U’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification or appeal against the Board which in itself is a complex task. The alternative may be a time taking process and producers might lose out on bringing their trailer on screens next Friday.
A similar case was found last month when Rakesh Roshan‘s production film Kaabil‘s trailer was found ineligible for ‘UA’ to be released with Karan Johar‘s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
The Central Board of Film Certification stays very rigid with its laws and makes filmmakers struggle a lot. Now let’s see how Jagga Jasoos overcomes Censor Board’s decision.
Jagga Jasoos is an Anurag Basu film bringing ex-love buddies Katrina and Ranbir together on screen after Rajneeti.
