No Fathers in Kashmir

The board claimed that any news on the lines of it banning No Fathers in Kashmir were completely untrue and baseless, adding, that the ones responsible for spreading such rumours should take account of the matter. Regional Officer, CBFC Mumbai Tushar Karmarkar told PTI, "We are disappointed with the misinformation being spread about the film No Fathers In Kashmir. Any news of CBFC banning this film is completely false. And all responsible people should take account of that. We want to again clarify that filmmakers of No Fathers In Kashmir have already been offered an adult certificate and the reasons thereof have clearly been communicated to them."

"It's unfortunate that unwarranted pressure is being put by spreading misinformation of a ban. CBFC will continue to do its work in a fair and transparent manner without succumbing to misguided pressure tactics," Karmarkar said.

Bhatt's comments come in after Swara Bhasker spoke out in support of director Ashvin Kumar. However, reportedly, fresh cuts have been suggested for the film, while Kumar has been struggling to get the film a U/A certificate as he felt it needed to reach a wider audience.

Bhatt had earlier tweeted that the film should be given permission to release.
