'Election' Stalled!

IndiaGlitz [Thursday, May 02, 2013]

The regional censor board has stalled the 'Election' - not the coming May 5th Assembly Election to the state but the 'Election' Kannada cinema that was planned for May 3rd 2013 all over Karnataka.

The prestigious banner of Ramu faces strong objection from Censor Board for the contents. Many of the characters and situations resemble the current politicians. That is objectionable. We are advising the film to get censor from Revising Committee told the Censor chief in Bangalore K Nagaraju.

Such strictures passed by the regional censor board crushed the purpose of the film. Although there is beatings in commercial format of a cinema the main emphasis of the film starring Malashri in the role of Election commissioner was to make the people to vote and select the right persons in the 'Election'.

'Election' came before the regional censor board on Monday and the scenes captured in the film had direct reference to present political parties on the scams and other activities was the complaint. The film is made in commercial format and the purpose kept in the film is the make people come and vote. It would be a good opportunity for all political parties says actress Malashri.

Producer Ramu registered this title five years ago. The film coming before the elections was a right one. I suspect some politicians hands in this he alleges. We have spent crores of rupees on this film and the awareness carried in the film was very helpful for the actual election stated Ramu.

The situation is only here in Karnataka for Kannada films. Such daring films made in other languages get the nod. The members in the Censor Committee not knowing anything about cinema are members opined senior actor Srinivasamurthy.
