New Delhi: The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on last Thursday 'clarified' it has not imposed any ban on Oscar-nominated director Ashvin Kumar's 'No Father in Kashmir.' Earlier in the day, Alia Bhatt, whose mother Soni Razdan stars in the film, had taken to social media to urge the CBFC to 'lift the ban'. She tweeted,
"Was soo looking forward to mom's @nofathers_movie #nofathersinkashmir!! @Soni_Razdan @ashvinkumar & team worked super hard for this honest teens love story in Kashmir. Really hope the CBFC would #lifttheban. It's a film about empathy & compassion.. let's give love a chance!" However, according to Tushar Karmarkar, Regional Officer, CBFC, Mumbai, the news of the ban is "completely false."
The film, a love story of two 16-year-olds who are individually searching for their missing father, stars Razdan, Anshuman Jha and Kulbulshan Kharbanda.
