Jannat 2 not allowed to be shown on TV before 11 pm


By Hindustan Times

After The Dirty Picture, Jannat 2 becomes the second film to be banned by the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for screening during prime-time slot on TV. Despite opting for cuts and getting a U/A certificate for its TV premiere, the CBFC issued a diktat to the makers of Jannat 2 that they
could screen their film only post 11 pm.

This decision has irked the Bhatts to no end and producer Mukesh Bhatt has said that he wouldn't accept this condition laid down by the Censor Board. The Bhatts feel that if they agreed to the various cuts asked by the CBFC, then why not allow the film to be screened at prime-time? However, the CBFC feels that a film like Jannat 2 despite its various cuts is still not suitable to be watched by young viewers.

The Dirty Picture is yet to be premiered on TV and if the makers of Jannat 2 don't agree to the CBFC's demands, their film may have to face the same fate. If that happens, satellite rights which serve as a big revenue source for filmmakers will be affected in a bad way.
