The two governments issued the order to ban the film because, as the Haryana government’s letter says, “there are strong reasons to apprehend that if the film is screened in the State, there could be protests by different organizations/individuals which may cause damage to private as well as to public property resulting in serious law & order situation in the State. It has the potential to endanger the peace and social harmony in the State.”
Haryana letter was issued even after the film’s producers had voluntarily removed the dialogue, despite the CBFC having certified it. On Friday, the film’s publicist issued a statement quoting Kishor Arora, producer, Eyecandy Films, saying, “We have a valid Censor certification and voluntarily removed the objectionable matter as we do not wish to hurt anyone’s sentiments. It’s very sad that in spite of all this, we are facing difficulties in exhibiting the film. Where do we go seek redressal (sic).”
