On the movie production front, there are only dubbing left and post-production formalities to be completed. The remake film is nearing the end of shooting. Moreover, the censor board has given this Bengali remake an ‘A’ Certificate. The Central Board of Film Certification has also not cut any scenes out. The CBFC, however, has asked for a replacement for a few cuss words or muting of such words. The movie makers have agreed for replacing or muting some words in the movie. Veteran singer Asha Bhosle sings a composition by Anu Malik. The movie stars Gauahar Khan & Naseeruddin Shah.
Meanwhile, the director of Begum Jaan, Srijit said, “I visited the Central CBFC office for the first time. They have agreed to give us an ‘A’ certificate with no cuts at all if we mute or replace certain cuss words like ‘mad****od’ and ‘bhe****d’ which we have agreed to do. I will take the final call on what to replace them with when I see the film in one flow. In fact, they even mentioned to me that they are usually very strict with words, but they have let certain words pass in our film owing to the context in which they have been said.” The movie is all set for release on March 17, 2017.
