Manoj Bajpayee hopes CBFC clears ‘Love Sonia’ without cuts

Mumbai, Aug 22: Actor Manoj Bajpayee hopes the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) clears “Love Sonia”, based on women trafficking, without cutting any portion of the film.

“‘Love Sonia’ is based on women trafficking and I hope our censor board passes that film as soon as possible and for that, I would like to urge the censor board to not cut any portion of that film because women trafficking is a very big issue of our society and it’s a horrific crime,” Manoj said here on Tuesday.

“I think if ‘Love Sonia’ will be released without any cuts then whoever will watch it, he or she will get affected and disturbed by the subject of the film. It will make the audience think about that issue so it is necessary to release this film without any cuts so that people will know about women trafficking where small girls are being forced into prostitution.”

He thinks the team has made a really good film.

“Lots of my friends who are directors and have watched it have appreciated the film. Lots of people have seen it at international film festivals,” he said.

“I remember when (Hollywood actress) Demi Moore watched this film in Los Angeles, she wasn’t able to speak for two to three hours after watching it. So that kind of impression… this film leaves on the mind of the audience.”

“Love Sonia” tells the heartfelt and brave story of Sonia, a young Indian village girl whose life changes when she is entrapped into the vicious global sex trade network.

The Tabrez Noorani directorial also features Mrunal Thakur, Freida Pinto, Moore, Richa Chadha, Anupam Kher, Adil Hussain, Rajkummar Rao and Sai Tamhankar.

It is scheduled to release on September 14.



Will abide by what SC rules on Sushant probe, says Maharashtra Govt




Sushant Singh Rajput No More

Nagpur, Aug 8 : Though the Maharashtra government opposes a CBI probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case, it will abide by the Supreme Court’s decision in the matter, state Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Saturday.

In a significant statement, Deshmukh told media persons that the state will follow the ruling of the apex court vis-a-vis the probe into the case, but opposes a CBI investigation on grounds of jurisdiction.

“The Mumbai Police are probing the case very thoroughly and professionally. However, we shall go by what the Supreme Court says at the hearing on August 11,” he said.

In the past week, Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh briefed Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar, while investigating team members met officials of the Law and Judiciary Department.

The latest stand is different from the Maharashtra government’s earlier stated position that there was no need to hand over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) as the Mumbai Police are doing a competent job and probing it from all possible angles.

The CBI has registered an FIR based on the case lodged by Patna police on the complaint of Sushant’s father, K.K. Singh.

Last week, the Mumbai Police had cold-shouldered the Patna police team which was camping in Mumbai for several days for probing the Sushant case.

On Friday, irate over his 6-day long quarantine ordered by the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as he reached Mumbai to help the state police team, Patna’s SP, City, Vinay Tiwari hit out at the Maharashtra government after he was released.

“I was not quarantined, but the Sushant probe was quarantined,” he said, before flying back to Bihar as per Covid-19 protocols as directed by the BMC.
