‘Knock-Out’ Trailer Banned By Censor-Board
The movie ‘Knock-Out’ is in trouble even before its release, as the Censor Board has banned the just launched trailer of the movie. The movie which stars Kangana, Sanjay Dutt and Irfan Khan surrounded in controversy due to a Rs 1000 note.
In the trailer it is shown that someone wonders that why a Rs 1000 note is pink in color unlike the other amount notes. Irfan explains to the person and says, “Because it is created from the blood and sweat of the common man."
The Censor Board raised an objection due to the derogatory reference to the Indian currency. But the filmmakers of the movie haven’t revised the dialogue yet and have instead gone to the committee for convincing about it.
Sources also add further, “Why should the reference to the 1000-rupee note be seen as derogatory? What we've said is that politicians build their wealth on the betrayed trust of common people. Isn't that the truth? Besides in 'Aashayein', we have John Abraham constantly throwing, kicking and shoving wads of currency. Why didn't the censor board object to that?"
Producer Sohail Makhlai confirms, "It's true they objected to a reference to the 1000-rupee note. We're now taking the trailer to the revising committee.”
